Seriously, was anybody demanding a revival of this particular 80’s property? And more to the point: why is this a comedy? I’ve never seen the TV series (most famous for featuring Johnny Depp early in his career), but as I understand it, it wasn’t so quip-y and slapstick-y. Now, all of that aside, I’d say that this trailer hovers around the “mildly amusing” level of entertainment. I find Channing Tatum to be pretty repellent, but I enjoy Jonah Hill well enough. Final verdict: I will see this when it’s released on DVD, and even then, probably not right away.
