    Never watched it the first time around, won't watch the remake, either.

    My favorite line from this movie is:

    I am going to have to watch it this weekend just so I can hate the remake even more.

    I have mixed feelings about this. I don't think it's a sacred story or a sacred movie that shouldn't ever be touched again, although if anybody could ever top Shirley or Olympia's performances I'll die of shock. However, having black actors (or any other non-white race) might actually make it interesting and worth remaking. I guess I just hate that it's a Lifetime movie. Just seems so cheesy.

    I just watched the trailer and it looks like they used the exact same script.

    Thinking back: I first saw this in the theater back in the day with a guy I sort of dated, and remember his comment being: They made all the men look like idiots in this.

    I am SO sick of remakes. I know Alfre Woodard and Phylicia Rashad will be awesome, but I don't see the point.

    When I think of Lifetime movies, I always think of some woman cowering in the corner with tears rolling down her eyes clutching a phone calling 911 while some man is banging the door trying to get inside.

    ...and the Betty Broderick story of course. Because Meredith Baxter-Birney kicked ass in that role.

    Lifetime is all about the stalker/rapist/abuser/mindfucking husband or boyfriend. Or jealous co-worker.

    plus, they usually have Tori Spelling in them. Can't this movie fit her in somewhere?

    LOL, how true.

    When I was in Cali a few years back, I approached Tori's people with a script I was sure she'd like about an interracial romance gone wrong.

    It was called, "Momma, Can I Sleep With Ugly?". I kinda liked Della Reese for the momma role.

    Can't imagine why they turned it down....hmmmmm...
