Like the rest of the media, the Internet is awash with misinformation about Adam Sandler's newest movie -- including that it is a remake of the 1970s television series. While my curiosity is piqued, I'm not as well-versed in '70s television animation or in Bob DuBois' voicing talents as I am in eighties animation. I have not seen the original version, but I guess I could review it to help you in your quest for truth... and Adam Sandler does have eight crazy nights, after all!
It's too bad that a ton of people thought that this was a remake of the TV series where Buddy from Happy Gilmore falls through the ice and has seven crazy versions of him -- from Gus (the middle-finger gesture is mentioned on this website but not in the show) to Friar Tuck. Yes, the film references the TV series, but the show's version is fan service and is just for laughs. A little \"Happy Gilmore\" giddiness, sure, but not a remake. DuBois does imitate the TV series' cast, but I wouldn't blame anyone for not recognizing him. He has some character voices, though, that are pretty recognizable even to non-Buddy fans. 7211a4ac4a
