    I would have to say that I now do not think that it will be that good. I just lokked it up on IMDB and it has writing credits by Keenon and Marlon wayans. That is to bad.

     On this subject of this movie, I won't be seing it if the Wayans are directing and writing as heard. The Munsters is a family show and The Wayans Bros. don't strike me or nearly anybody who can pull of a family movie but only a foul mouth movie that familys can't attend together.

    I checked the link but found nothing about Rose wanting to play Lily. I did hear a while back that John Goodman had auditioned for Herman and Catherine Zeta Jones was considered for Lily. Personally, I'd love to play Granpa myself in it. I just hope its done in B/W, because color doesn't work well where the Munsters are involved.

    As far as the rest of the cast, any young unknown resembling Butch Patrick should play Eddie. Reese Witherspoon would be perfect for Marilyn if she played her as a normal girl stuck with a Sixties Marilyn Munroe-hair style.

    Yeah, I won't see it if it's inappropriate--which, unfortunately, it will most likely be. I watch the show because it is clean. Why would I watch a version that isn't?

    Please, let it not be so! There have been many attempts to resurrect THE MUNSTERS over the past thirty years, most of which are abysmal! You CAN NOT replace the chemistry of the original cast, so let's hope that this attempt by the Wayans clan falls by the wayside. If it does occur, it'll be just another poor attempt at updating a very good TV show.
