Nicole Kidman Has Bad Judgment
I’m not just talking about that whole “I was married to Tom Cruise for 10 years(Tom: It was 9 years and 11 months)” debaucle. I’m not even talking about her deep, abiding love of the Botox (seriously, Nic, your forehead doesn’t move anymore and it freaks me out). No, this is about how–after almost 2 decades in the film business–she still seems to pick movie projects that have “this is gonna suck” written all over it.
Case in point: She’s going to produce, and star in, a remake of “How to Marry a Millionaire.” Anyone remember the original? It’s starred Marilyn Monroe, Lauren Bacall, and Betty Grable as three women on the hunt to bag themselves rich husbands.
Did I mention the original was made in 1953? Yeah, we’ve come a long way, baby! Though, according to the official announcement:
“Plot details for the updated “Millionaire” are being kept under wraps, but it is described as a complete overhaul of the original story.”
I guess a complete overhaul would entail it being three dudes trying to bag rich women (wow, there’s a new idea), but maybe I’m thinking too much inside the box. Maybe there’ll be space aliens or something in this one. Let’s not judge. I’m sure there will be time enough for that once the film is nominated for those Razzie Awards it’s sure to garner.
Seriously, Nicole, didn’t you learn anything from “The Stepford Wives?”
