This was a good live-action remake of the comic!
11 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie because I grew up with the Archie comics and always wondered who would play their parts if this were ever live-action.

The only thing I would have left out was the fact that Archie and his fiancee are living together. Not a good example for kids.

Great job otherwise! The characters are well-captured - I just wish another could be made to show the cast in their 40's and what they do with their lives.
