|Columbia Pictures | Release Date: June 28, 2002||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
A torturous, mawkish, ill-conceived remake.
Something's wrong with the math here -- the inheritance of the story's small-town hero is enlarged from $20 million to $40 billion, yet the new movie isn't worth the price of a Depression-era ticket.
The remake stumbles from a ragged start into a child's garden of worses -- worse than the original in more ways than you could imagine.
