1 Remakes are automatic bones, but in this case the remake factor is blown out of the water by the "Go To Japan" factor. It was an absolutely dreadful movie that all the basic aspects of boning the fish including: Exit Stage Left (Tanner Boyle; Timmy Lupus; Amanda / Carmen Ronzonni) Puberty (Pretty much everyone) New Kid In Town / Cousin Oliver Syndrome (Ahmid's kid brother; and there's a Jesus freak on the team now?) Same character; Different Actor (Matthau begat Devane begat Curtis; Musical Engelbergs) Even without all of the above, the plot was awful. Tony Curtis' character was impossible to like. There was no "game" other than the sand lot one they played at the end (outcome unknown). This was effectively the movie the "Bears" didn't need to make. The reboot may have been bad (I honestly didn't see that), but at least it was based on the original movie and characters. "Go To Japan" was just awful. Breaking Training wasn't AS good as the first, but it was good enough, definitely funny, had a feel good ending and cameos by Bob Watson, JR Richard and Enos Cabell. That was a decent sequel. Go To Japan was not. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on July 26, 2012, 12:10 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 This was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid, along with the second, yet inferior one. Walter Matthau was great in this role. I didn't care for the remake though. I believe Matthau was acting like an ass while Thorton was just playing himself. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 20, 2011, 4:49 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
