I am a die hard 80's movie fan, because I was there. And I don't generally care for a remake of an already great movie, BUT this was hilarious. Was it like the original..not really, but close enough and portrayed dating today, verses twenty years ago..in a much funnier way. I do agree that the lead characters were not made as appealing as the original movie, but Kevin Hart brought it home.
I think it evolved into a different version of a great film, while keeping the basics the same and loved every minute of it.
