I’m not the biggest fan of remakes, but sometimes they jell and get a smile from me (The Brady Bunch in 1995, 21 Jump Street in 2012). Dax Shepard and Michael Peña are perfectly cast in the remake of the classic TV series, with Shepard also on directing duties. They are surrounded by an awesome supporting cast that includes Adam Brody, Kristen Bell, Vincent D’Onofrio, Jessica McNamee, Ryan Hansen, and Maya Rudolph. The movie comes out on March 24th, 2017. You can check out the trailer here.
