Hollywood is beyond Lazy & minimal innovation..Why fuck with a classic!? Just make another movie with similar issues of teens from the hood. Geesh!
Next thing, they'll re-make Claudine & Cornbread, Earl & Me

Noooooo! Don't do it! I'm so sick and tired of Hollyweird with all of these "remakes". This is how you know that they're running out of "original" ideas for scripts. There are so many new and fresh story lines that they can come up with, instead of digging in the archives, and remaking every damn thing. Classics are called "classics" for a reason. It was special for it's time, and cannot be recreated again in the same way. Just leave it alone, and come up with something new and fresh. Stop ruining our beloved movies. SMH.

This is the reason why people are so upset at the remake of Ghostbusters. People get upset at their favorite movies being messed up

Cooley High is one of my favorite movies. I would prefer they didn't remake it. Buuut, if they just have to, they had better not, in the words of RuPaul, f%ck it up. ijs

Absolutely NOT. Flor the past several years they have been rehashing stories and producing movies based on tv shows and comic books. If they don't have enough imagination to write original stories, then they need to shut the movie industry down.

May God forgive me for this, but I hope the project bombs at the box office.

UGH. And watch them cast some cornballs of today like Tyga, Asap Rocky, Bow Wow and whoever else. And it will bomb.

Noooooooo! Leave this movie alone. Just like the poster above said it will probably have wack, non- talented casts. Do a Friday movie with the original cast.
