Watch, Pass, TiVo, or Rent: Fame

I had semi-cynical feelings about the remake of Fame when I first heard it was being cast, but flash ahead two years later, and the trailer has me kind of pumped to see it on Friday. The music numbers look flashy, and it's got So You Think You Can Dance alum Kherington Payne, so I fully expect to be toe-tapping in my seat.

But here's the dilemma: I also really loved the original Fame. The characters were just these fragile, but impassioned people — and there were pirouettes on cars! It will always have a place on my list of dance movies.

I still want to see this new version — 'cause basically I'll see any film that features Capezios — but I'm hoping that it's different enough from its predecessor so I can just enjoy it for what it is: a total guilty pleasure.

Are you going to check out Fame this weekend? Or will you wait until it comes out on DVD, so you can do your dancing at home?

If I don't see it in the theater, I'll definitely rent it.

I, too, was excited to see Kherington in Fame, but last night I saw a trailer that showed her speaking and she is completely dubbed over with someone else's voice. Very disappointing.

Trailers are only dependable 50% of the time, at best. But the trailers got me interested enough to check this new version out. It seems to potentially have a slightly unique edge to it.
