Father Knows Best Coming to the Big Screen

Perhaps Hollywood heard my pleas to take a rest from all the '80s movie remakes — by mining the '50s for remake material. Very funny, Hollywood. But seriously, stop. Latest from Remake Central: Classic TV series Father Knows Best will be adapted for the big, modern screen. Here's more:

The contemporized film will involve a father whose modern-day parenting displeases his more traditional father, who comes to live with the family. They clash over which father knows best.

Hollywood has long been attracted to the idea of making a film out of the series that starred Robert Young. Father Knows Best began on NBC radio in 1949, moved to TV in 1954 and ran until 1960, when Young called it quits even though the show was peaking in popularity.

So it basically sounds like a story of Dad vs. Grandpa. Maybe it's mostly just the title that's the same? Huh. I wonder if a modern Leave It to Beaver movie is next.

Fair enough, fair enough. :) The 11-year-old me enjoyed plenty of things that were far worse than a Leave it to Beaver remake, I'm certain, so I shouldn't be one to talk!

They already re-made Leave it to Beaver in the 90's...

Did they not learn anything from Bewitched? Why is Hollywood so chicken to bring original stories to the big screen? It can't be any more of a crap shoot than remakes.
