An Open Letter To Hollywood:
We let you have Footloose. We ignored The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. And Neil Patrick Harris made The Smurfs at least palatable. And we’re letting you slide on your current obsession with remaking every single movie ever released in 3D just because you can. Frankly, I’m hoping that fad does out with the skinny belt, but I’m willing to let bygones be bygones if you just let us have The Princess Bride.
I can hope and pray that my Facebook sources are wrong and some seriously messed up individual decided to play the greatest practical joke of all time by posting this article touting a remake starring Paul Rudd and Mindy Kaling on Family Video’s website. But just in case there is the slightest bit of truth to this news, let me suggest you go back to the drawing table, get an original idea, and make a movie out of that. Go ahead and smoke something if need to be to, ahem, inspire some creativity. We promise not to nark.

PS: If this really is happening, I started a petition. People might even sign it.
PPS: Don’t bother me. I’m busy rewriting the Bible. I figured it could do with an update.
