Once again, Hollywood looks into the idea cupboard, finds it bare, and starts rooting around in the wastebasket for a half-eaten donut. MGM is remaking the Rodney Dangerfield/pre-legal-problem Robert Downey Jr. classic Back to School. Cedric the Entertainer, who is currently reimagining Chevy Chase in Johnson Family Vacation, will update the Dangerfield role.

We're going to refrain from making another "black actor inserted into 80's comedy originally starring a white guy" joke, because some producer would steal the idea and cut us out of our packaging fee.
