This is a remake of a movie from 1975. I now want to see the original movie, not because this one is so good, but to see what they screwed up so badly.
In the first twenty minutes or so of the movie, we're given the basic plot gimmick (the wives are being brainwashed!), the rest is a series of cheap jokes and it leaves you wondering when it'll end. There's a cute little plot, but it makes you scratch your head at the end, as it devolves from something that's almost believable to completely hacked and seemingly put together just to get a movie made.
Again, I haven't seen the original, but somehow I suspect this falls into the very large category of movies that don't need to be remade.
