Just had to exit one of my favorite IRC chats on my own free will, before I said something I might regret. Subject turned to movies, I mentioned that since they are making a remake of "The Pink Panther" with Steve Martin as Inspector Clouseau, that Hollywood is "out of ideas". One person in the room started ranting that ANYTHING would be an improvement over the originals, he found them "boring as hell". I said he had no sense of humor... then held back and signed off early. No one but Peter Sellers (who originated the role) should play it. Case closed. Personally, I found the originals hilarious. Only remake I have ever seen that was an improvement over the original was "A Star Is Born"... the Judy Garland/James Mason version was far superior to the Janet Gaynor/Fredric March version.
