One four letter word is all that is needed to sum this piece of tripe up, and it sure as hell isn't good, okay or fair. I hated it, it is insult not only to the original but also to Martin who seems to have taken to doing these god-awful remakes that in fact only serve to butcher the memory and heritage of the original film.
Sellars turned a star performance in the Original and while it was extremely silly, it was not childish.
I would suggest a better use of your time would be to drill a hole through your hand. I therefore poo poo this film utterly and without remorse.
