OK, I admit it. I enjoyed this movie. I didn't want to. I'm not a huge fan of Russell Brand. And who could replace Dudley Moore? I liked the original. It was a classic. I always say you shouldn't mess with a classic. But, I think what I liked about this one was that Russell Brand wasn't trying to "be" Dudley Moore - he was being Russell Brand. It was definitely over the top in a lot of scenes and totally unrealistic, but it was also fun - and very funny! And Helen Mirren was great as his nanny, Hobson. Overall, it was the same story as the original - he's incredibly wealthy, has never really grown up, is drunk most of the time, and finds his true love where you would least expect. But, it's also updated for current times - the original is 30 years old! And the story isn't exactly the same, so it's not really like watching a remake. I actually found myself not even thinking about the original. I didn't think that would happen! So, yes, I liked it. It was funny. It was witty. It was silly. It was a good movie to get away from reality for awhile. I'm glad I watched it!
