I've often wondered, who would make good leads if the movie "The Main Event" ever got a modern remake?
Who could play the parts that Ryan O'Neal and Barbara Striesand did?
Many I've spoken to feel that movie really kicked things along (myself included) regarding their fetish, watching it at a very young age. As a late 70s/early 80s romance comedy, it has it's charm but might feel dated to today's audiences who expect more in-your-face sexytime.
For the male lead, I feel Mark Whalberg would do a good job in both the physical and comedy aspects that Ryan O'Neal put forth (not sure how good is he at being kind of whiny though).
For the female, I honestly can't think of who would be good, but several has suggested Jennifer Lopez.
For those who have seen the movie, what would your suggestions be?
