Remakes are no sure bet

 

"The Heartbreak Kid's" meager opening (it grossed just $14 million, not even winning the weekend) wasn't the kind of bellwether Hollywood was looking for. Over the next several months, the studios will flood the multiplex with a dozen other prominent (and often pricey) remakes. The thinking behind the remake is pretty straightforward, but the fact is, remakes are far from a sure thing. For every "3:10 to Yuma" hit remake, there's an "All the King's Men" dud.
