I don't know why, when they do something like this, they seem to feel they have to make it a comedy rather than updating and capturing the feeling of the original. That was a particular pet-peeve of mine with Starsky and Hutch. I loved that show as a kid and I would have liked to see a film that captured the elements that I enjoyed in the original.
