All the King's Horses and All the King's Men, Couldn't Put This Movie Together Again

Thud. That's the sound the remake of All the King's Men -- starring Sean Penn and directed by Steve Zaillian -- will make this weekend. How far the mighty have fallen. Just last year, this was the movie Sony was pinning its Oscar hopes on, its huge holiday release. Then it was pulled and rescheduled for earlier this year and pulled again. Now it quietly opens this weekend amidst critics (from the Toronto Film Festival, where it previewed earlier this month) saying it's a mess. Why remake this classic anyway?

Comments:
I'd like to see it and judge for myself. I didn't see the original and its topical.
