Have you seen how many 80's remakes are in the works right now? Is Hollywood out of ideas or what?! Maybe they've just realized how many of us loved movies in the 80's and still crave them.
Not to mention all the great one-liners that came from movies in that decade! Maybe the remakes will help us re-commit those movie lines to memory. Know what movie this was? "Louie brought his new girlfriend over, and the nicest thing I can say about her is all her tattoos are spelled correctly."
