Oh, Sad: Girls Just Want to Have Fun Remake in the Works

Man! This one hurts a little. Twentieth Century Fox and Lakeshore Entertainment are planning a remake of the 1985 teen movie Girls Just Want to Have Fun. The film starred little baby-faced Helen Hunt and Sarah Jessica Parker as two teenage friends who love to dance and long to make their way — despite, of course, disapproving parents because parents just don't understand — onto their favorite show: Dance TV.

That part of the news is not too hard to swallow, since everything's being remade these days. '80s remakes, remakes, everywhere. But here's the kicker: according to Variety, "The comedy will be developed as a potential star vehicle for Miley Cyrus."

So, allow me to amend: this one hurts a lot. Miley Cyrus?! Really?

My sisters and I love this movie, and my little niece just doesn't get our excitement at all. Well, she's 15 now and too cool for us.

I'm so sick of remakes.I agree they should never make a breakfast club remake but what would really hurt me is if they make a princess bride remake.

right, because we wouldn't want to taint the oscar worthy work in the original.

I am tired of remakes and personally I wouldn't mind kicking Miley Cyrus in her teeth. This is just..... can't think of a word for it. Exasperation kinda fits here.
