FAILS BY COMPARISON. SET YOUR EXPRESSION TO "CRINGE"
26 May 2019 | by raymarsh-51084See all my reviews

There is a great deal of pathos about the original movie with Davis and Crawford. It is difficult to determine exactly how you should feel about the remake. It is so superficial, suburban and character-deficit. The former child star character has the infantallism of Edina on Absolutely Fabulous, except she isn't funny. Just kind of dreary and pathetic.
