Not a remake of the TV show, but an excellent parody. Truly hilarious.
I went into the theater expecting a spin-off of the television show I watched while growing up. Well, the names are the same, but Will Smith is way too tall to be Jim West! Likewise for Kevin Kline as Artemus Gordon! But both of those guys, and Kenneth Branagh as the evil Dr. Loveless, were outstanding as they spoofed the TV show. Smith is a funny man and when given some excellent lines, he delivers. This is a movie which deals the race card, time and again, and everybody loves it. Smith, as a black secret agent in 1869, gets to whoop up on the "rednecks" and make them look inept and silly. And he has an excellent rapport with Kline, who does a masterful job as Artemus Gordon, master mechanic.
