I have only one question: Why?
It’s not like the first movie was a great masterwork or anything. Even so, it was fairly amusing (and now hopelessly dated) as an example of fantasy fulfillment for geeks everywhere, but that’s about it. It’s also noteworthy because it was Anthony Edwards’ first starring role (and he had hair back then) and because James Cromwell played Louis Skolnick’s father, with John Goodman playing the football coach.
The question produced by this remake, though, would be: What are the differences between the nerds of 2006 and the nerds of 1984, when the original movie was made?
