Absolutely Awful Remake
28 March 2001 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

This movie remake was as awful of a one I have seen in a while. Every character was miscast, especially Nellie, Bloody Mary and Luther. They absolutely murdered this remake of the original. I'd like to shake the hand of the idiot who came up with the idea to do this movie. He/she deserves to be punished. Don't blame the actors in the movie. They already have been punished enough for actually participating in such a horrible piece of trash. Give me the original South Pacific any day. At least in the original, you had true to life actors performing the roles with exceptional acting. The 2001 version is downright fakey, and the acting (if that is what you can call it) is forced and dull. I wish they would leave well enough alone. You know the saying, "If it ain't broke, why fix it."
