Has become a whole deal now. I feel the same about it as I do most remakes; I'll wait until it's been out a week to get some opinions before making a decision on whether to see it. That said I don't have high hopes for it. The casting is meh mostly because McCarthy seems kinda one dimensional and annoying to me. Wiig is a decent comedy actress at least.
As for the whole feminist rants and what not, it's not like some evil women are pulling the strings to ruin childhoods; the movie was cast by a man. Hollywood remaking everything is what ruins old properties, this is just another one of those unless it surprises me and ends up good.
