Not only did Goldie Hawn unleash Kate Hudson on the world, she also unleashed a slew of films about bubbly blondes who get caught up in love, murder and international intrigue. With the recent announcement that Hollywood would be remaking Hawn's 1980 classic Private Benjamin with Anna Faris and 1987's Overboard with Jennifer Lopez, it seems like goodwill towards her films is at an all-time high, so we figured we'd get in on the ground floor of this new Goldie Age and pitch remakes of some of our favorite Hawn vehicles. Here are the movies that we'd like to see re-done and who we'd like to see star in them.
Two incredibly disturbing bits of news came through this week that will leave '80s film fans disgusted and fans of modern cinema discouraged. Rather than coming up with new ideas for movies, studios have decided to greenlight two remakes of beloved '80s classics: the Kurt Russell/Goldie Hawn comedy Overboard and the kids-vs.-monsters actioner The Monster Squad. While any day when a perfectly good movie is remade is a sad one, there are a lot of extenuating circumstances at play here that make these two remakes particularly troublesome.
