Bruce Says: You have to love the credentials behind this reboot and I've been very surprised how many folks my age are excited to see this movie.  Depending where you look, critics are being a bit grumpy or happy with with the movie.

Rotten Tomatoes critic review scale has it at an 85% with 62 reviews in!  Booya! And kudos to the brave, damp mops who dared to diss it.
