a complete departure from the original
4 January 2005 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

I accidentally started watching this film on television, but didn't catch all of it at first, and when renting it on video, found myself watching the original 1956 feature version, from which this radically departs. Where the original was gritty, stilted and somewhat tragic, the remake is funny, heartwarming, amusing and a definite twist on the fifties teen caper.

This film is the way one expects a fifties teen caper to be, from the viewpoint of a modern audience brought up on Grease and American Graffiti.. fun and endearing.

The original seems far too serious, adult and tense to be watchable by a younger audience today, and in some ways much less believable, despite the distinctly far-fetched ending of the modern production.

Don't watch it expecting a faithful remake, but watch it because it's a lovely little tale of supposedly more innocent times past.
