No it was around '98, I remember that I think it was supposed to come out like around when The XFiles move came out; not sure but I for some reason am remembering hearing that from Access Hollywood ~ who knows but I really am dissapointed, there needs to be an awesome movie like that; there's like nothing good in the theatres but the new movie Jamie Lee is in and that's only 'cause I like her. lmao. But otherwise, I can't find any other actors worth watching but Jamie and the L&S cast. *shrugs*

'98 sounds about right, yep. As far as nothing good being in theaters, I saw The Polar Express and I LOVED it...but there haven't been a lot of other movies as of late that I've been very interested in, either. But Jamie Lee Curtis IS cool. And yep, the actors I follow very closely are mostly in the 50+ category.

Oh I don't know, I just think that there should be a movie with the originals or nothing at all. And I think that the only reason on WHY Hollywood wouldn't want it is 'cause Cindy & Penny aren't all young and wanting to do nude scenes ~ that's all movies are really about now-a-days. lmao. Hollywood is so fixated on women's ages and it really is p!ssing me off.


I agree that if there were to be a non-bio-pic movie, the original cast would be best. I also agree that Hollywood is oversexed. A movie would have been and would be great, but it's all dependant on everybody's schedules, health, public interest, etc. But yup, a reason like age is a silly factor in deciding such a thing! And yeah, the celebrities seem to get younger and people seem to get more critical...heh...bugs me, too.

Yeah, that's exactly what I mean; I think that the movie would have to be in the presentfor the original cast to perform in it ~ that's what I'd love to see, not a bio one; just kinda like them all running in to each other once again.

I can see where you're coming from. Maybe the thing to do should be cast the originals who are still around as parents, aunts and uncles of today's generation.

The more I read everyone's posts the more I realize that the original cast would be better so off to Imagine casting I go.

Yay And that's what I thought would be the best way to go about a movie, having the original cast but they can just be more mature; they can still be funny though and whacky ~ you know that once you're fun, you are for life. lol. Usually.

I would suspect you have to keep the age of the actors in proportion to each other, but here are some ideas.

Laverne - Bitty Schram, Laura Prepon, Scarlett Johansson, Natasha Lyonne

Shirley - Winona Ryder, Thora Birch, Mila Kunis, Katie Holmes

I suppose height would have to be a consideration as Laverne is taller than Shirley- and since Katie Holmes is 5'9" she would really only work with someone near her height - like Laura Prepon (who is 5'10").

I can't think of any guys under 35 to play Lenny and Squiggy yet.

Lenny - Will Ferrell
Squiggy - Jack Black

I like that idea. She can play sweet and innocent.

I don't know if any of you have seen the movie "Lucas" - she was 14 years old in that!

But i don't think that anyone's interested in Shirley's sewing circle...I think they're all too old. I love them, but they're too old to be interesting.

Well you have your choice, Original cast/Talent, Younger actors/No talent; your choice. And just because the original cast may be a bit older now, that doesn't mean that they can't be funny and do what they used to on the show.
