Skip the remake, watch the original.
29 November 2001 | by (Almaden Valley, CA, USA) – See all my reviews

Even though the original version of "The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes" was not a great movie, it was fun to watch. This poor remake is but a pale shadow of the original and not worth the film used to shoot it.
