I’m really impressed with the job they did with this remake. And to be fair it isn’t really a remake of the 1980s movie but a film based on the David Mamet play, “Sexual Perversity in Chicago”, which both movies are based from.
That being said, they payed homage to the original movie a number of times, including a brief scene where the couple are watching it.
What I liked best about this version is they fleshed out the character of Joan much more than the original. Joan, played by Regina Hall, and Bernie, Kevin Hart, were fantastic together and most of the laughs in the movie surround their performances.
All said the acting was good and the pacing was great, which is to be expected because the original play won many awards. If you’re looking for a date night movie this Valentines the choice is easy.
