All the purists go for the original, and I can respect that..but for me this was the one to watch-- had the classic lines, the very cool villian (and his dopey sidekick), they gave Moranis more to do (Granted he was much more amusing to watch as Vince the dog), and it was cool to see the progression of these guys after saving the city and getting blacklisted as frauds.
Aykroyd,Murray,Ramis--all in their prime at this point.
Surprisingly enough, I actually liked this little Disney remake--of course, I've never seen the original, but still.. It's almost charming in its own cutesy syrupy way. As per usual, Danny Glover elevates this film, and Tony Danza almost turns in a credible performance(Translation: He doesn't ruin the movie..how about that?)
If you need to revel in early 90's live action Disney nostalgia, go ahead, sit through this thing.
With ping-pong as the theme behind this movie, I didn't know what to expect. I loved it! Very funny! Walken is hysterical in his role. Great writing. My kind of humor.....not so much the slapstick, but the lines that were spoken and the way that they were delivered. No showboating here.
