Originally posted by TheOldManI've seen two or three weeks of the ad for "Are We Done Yet?" (in heavy rotation), and was left wondering why they are re-making "The Money Pit" already. Apparently this is actually a sequel.
It is a sequel to "Are We There Yet?" is is also quite clearly a remake of "The Money Pit" which was in turn a remake of the Cary Grant classic "Mr. Blanding Builds His Dream House" http://imdb.com/title/tt0040613/
One of the tip=offs is that the working title of "Are We Done Yet?" was "Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House"
A taut, well-made political thriller by George Clooney where we learn just how much it takes to wipe the perpetual, know it all smile from Ryan Gosling's face. Review with SPOILERS at Back of the Head (backofthehead.com)
