 It's been a long time since we've been OUTRAGED enough by Hollywood's idiocy to target a MOVIE THAT SHOULD NOT BE MADE . . . but I think we've got a prime candidate this morning.Sony is actually working on a big-screen version of the classic '70s sitcom "Good Times" . . . the story of a poor black family struggling to "keep their heads above water" and starring the incomparable JIMMIE J.J. WALKER! -This is obviously a HORRIBLE idea, and Hollywood will just screw it up like they do with 99% of the remakes that infest theaters these days.

The ratings are expected to rebound a little bit next week though, because it gets into the New Testament and Jesus arrives.
