Over on the Reel Fanatic website (, Keith Demko has listed his choices for the worst movie remakes. I don't disagree with any of his choices so I thought I just add six more to the list:

The Bad News Bears -- while I haven't seen the Walter Matthau/Jodie Foster version in quite a long time, I know it was much, much better than this Billy Bob Thornton crap
The Longest Yard -- the Burt Reynolds original was fun and Reynolds used to play football, Adam Sandler is miscast and not a bit funny (okay, he never has been funny is anything)
Never Say Never Again -- Thunderball isn't one of my favorite Bond films but this remake (even with Connery as Bond) is lame
King Kong -- does anyone remember the 1976 remake of Kong with Jessica Lange? Didn't think so. It's really bad.
Payback -- Mel Gibson's loosy remake of a totally cool Lee Marvin film.
Check out Keith's list for what are probably the worst remakes ever.

Thanks for the notice ... I agree with all your choices but one ... Maybe I'm just a sucker for drunk, surly Billy Bob Thornton, but I thought the Bad News Bears remake, though thoroughly unnecessary, was very funny
