Pretty Wretched
7 March 2007 | by ElswetSee all my reviews

In comparison to the original work, this was so sadly lacking that it doesn't even really rate a review. The characters were redeveloped and recreated in a haphazard way such as to suggest that those responsible for this work not only did not SEE the original, but did not CARE TO SEE the original in any form. That's how far from the original this remake went.

I'm apprehensive about the Alicia Keyes remake, but here's hoping it's done a little more reverently and lovingly than this pile of detritus.

It rates a 0.7/10 from...
