I have a feeling the Short Circuit remake will be more Mac & C.H.E.E.S.E.

I figured this thread would be some sort of backhanded allusion to that movie as well.

CASH IN.

What? PIXAR is making a movie about a lovable robot? Let's dust off any old movie along those lines and rake in the cash!

At least it's being remade by the same people as the first one.

Plus maybe they can make a sequel that doesn't completely suck.

I don't get why they would even attempt to remake this. What's next, Batteries Not Included?
