The original is campy on accident, and I'm glad they didn't try to do that in the remake. The way over the top campiness was the only way to make this fresh. The movie is really designed for people who saw (and loved) the original. I wouldn't expect newcomers to it to enjoy it much at all.
Back to my book, what John tore me away from for the film. Goodnight.
p.s. She's fabulous!
