FAME isn't always what it's cracked up to be
So when FAME showed up on my menu a few nights later, my wife and I sat down to watch it. First we were surprised to see Kelsey Grammer in it. I donít remember him in FAME. And Kelsey has always looked older than he is, but here he looked really old. Then Bebe Neuwirth was in it. She looked great. But I never knew they worked together before CHEERS. How did that never come up?
The movie continued. The story and the steps seemed right, but I said to my wife, ďI guess itís been a long time since Iíve seen this movie, but I donít remember any of this.Ē She felt the same.
And we were fifteen minutes into it and I was saying, ďWhere is Irene Cara?Ē
So finally I went to imdb and discovered we were watching the 2009 remake. There was a remake in 2009? I have absolutely recollection of it.
I also canít recall ever watching ten minutes of a movie I thought I had seen but hadnít.
Lesson learned. When setting up recordings, check the year.
We watched the rest of the reboot of FAME. Meh. I look forward to finding the original. But isnít that true in most cases?
Other reboots to avoid:
THE HEARTBREAK KID
THE OUT OF TOWNERS
THE IN LAWS
