Adam Sandler to Remake Summer School

Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison production company is set to remake 1987’s Summer School, a Carl Reiner-directed comedy about a gym teacher stuck teaching English all summer long to a pack of “oddballs and rebels.” Originally starring Mark Harmon, Kirstie Alley, Courtney Thorne-Smith, and a dog wearing sunglasses, this doesn’t seem like the kind of remake that’s going to upset too many people in love with the original. I mean, I’m just judging by the amazing DVD art and 6.1 IMDB rating; I haven’t seen it. Should I have? Is Summer School a classic comedy that I’ve somehow missed out on? Is Sandler about to ruin Mark Harmon’s finest work? Damn you, Sand-man!
