A Worthy Update submitted by Meginator on June 28, 2017, 8:51pm This is a hilarious movie with an outstanding cast and a ton of heart, and I believe that it is a worthy follow-up to its cult classic predecessor(s). The story is sharp, the leading ladies form a convincing ensemble, and the whole production is a lot of fun. It's not fair to the film or the cast and crew to expect this to be a shot-for-shot homage to the earlier films, and I appreciated the modern spin on the same basic story; even better, I think it stands alone, and you don't need to see the previous movies to enjoy this one. What's not to like?

In answer to the question, below, submitted by GJBarnett2 on July 10, 2017, 9:52am "what's not to like?" the answer is just about everything. Re-makes rarely compare well to the original and this is no exception. The CGI is vastly improved over the technology of 1984 but otherwise this is noteworthy primarily for the gimmick of the all-female lead ensemble so if that's your thing, go for it. Otherwise, watch the original or, better yer, read a book. Any book.

Better than the original submitted by gardenfaerie on August 6, 2017, 8:13pm I'm going to have to disagree with the latest review. While, no, this isn't great art or cinema fantastique, it's a fun movie and I enjoyed it a lot more than the original. Maybe because I love Melissa McCarthy and just am not a Bill Murray fan. It was ell worth the library price of free. :)

Fun submitted by anacoluthon on August 18, 2018, 2:40am I really enjoyed this! I like all the actors and thought they played off each other well.
