    Maybe this has been discussed already or perhaps this is already in the works.

    Considering the current trend with 70's remakes I think that this would be a good candidate.

    Cops
    Bad guys
    Fast motorcycles
    Fast cars
    Car chases
    Car crashes
    Hot california chicks
    Two studs (for the women) to play the lead roles

    Looks like we have what passes for a movie these days.

    They would make it as a throw away comedy and would star Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson.

    I would love for this movie to be made. I'd never see it, but it would pretty much guarantee a DVD release of the original series.

    Everyone's always so down on Starskey & Hutch, I thought it was hilarious! :b

    They're off to a good start with Wilmer as 'Ponch', the guy certaintly looks the part already.

    They probably will, and it would be another film that I wouldn't watch for free.

    Originality in Hollywood is about as rare as the famed Dodo bird.[​IMG]

    If they let Michael Bay make the ChiPs movie, and if he made it like a Californa version of Bad Boys 2, I suppose it could be worth some laughs and some thrills. But it basically sounds kinda silly.

    Of course, I've been rolling my eyes at movie ideas since the Brady Bunch sequel...

    Yeah, Hollywood has such a great quality record of making TV-to-movie adaptations. I really want them to make a movie based on a TV show I loved as a kid. I'm sure they'll treat it right.

    That's problem #1, as far as I'm concerned. The original show had some very funny moments, but it was a serious drama for the most part.

    I would never get so hung up on a an old television show, especially one's as cheesy as we used to get back then, where I couldn't appreciate a good parody of it.

    IMO, Starskey & Hutch wasn't even really that big of a parody, it had the look, feel and music of the original series, they just highlighted and poked fun at some aspects of it like the duo's quasi-homosexual relationship and Starskey's obsession with his car.

    I can't stand either one of the Charlies Angels movies, too much wire work and super hero type of stuff, The Dukes of Hazzard I haven't seen yet so I can't comment on it, but S&H isn't bad at all IMO.

    I agree,

    I found it hilarious. I didn't take any of it too seriously. It seemed to me that the makers of the film had a real affinity for the original series.

    Well, they're making a remake of TJ Hooker as an action comedy.
