Remakes That Shouldn’t Have Happened: ‘Float On’
It instantly sounded like a bad idea.
If this remake is, in fact, more ridiculous than the original, and I suspect it might be, it’s probably because this time around, we’re smacked in the face with the astrological signs of men with names like Delight, Daddy-O, and motherf*cking FRUKWAN (Gravediggaz notoriety aside, you still don’t get a pass for that, Frukwan). The Floaters could at least buy themselves a little more time by being somewhat normal in their introductions. I’m thinking it’s the difference between this:
Ralph: Aquarius– and my name is Ralph!
Woman at bar: Um.. good for you, Ralph, but I don’t think I asked you any of that.
Ralph: Hey, hey, hey! Cool out, now, mama. I just wanted the chance to tell you how my star signs affects my personality and what I like in a woman over a nice cold glass of Mad Dog.
Woman at bar: No I’m sorry, I’m not… did you say Mad Dog? Well okay, but you gotta leave when my girlfriend comes back, you’re sitting in her seat.
Frukwan: Cancer: and my name is Frukwan.
Woman at bar: Oh hell no. *gets up, walks away*
I’m giving this one to the drunk uncles.
