A Good remake candidate
I know people hates remakes so do I, but this film could be a perfect candidate for the argument "remake movies that were bad or did not work." This one is more of a near hit, It did not quite work. The script could be funnier, but its main problem was the lead. There's a reason Corbin Bernsen is stuck on TV, it's because he's just not compelling to watch. However it will be difficult to replace Fred Gwynn who was pitch perfect.
