They’re doing a remake of Drop Dead Fred

I love the 1991 movie Drop Dead Fred. It incorporates hilarious slapstick comedy into a very serious psychological drama about the harm that’s caused to children by verbal child abuse. The movie is funny, smart, touching, moving, and ultimately, uplifting because of its beautiful ending.

The Internet Movie Database states that a remake has gone into production with a release planned for 2014. A best case scenario would be for this remake to encourage a new audience to view the 1991 original version. Unfortunately, as it stands right now, the DVD of the original version is out of print – hopefully this situation will be rectified.
