Just saw Queen Latifah in a remake of Last Holiday. She's great and brings her own personality to the Alec Guinness role. It's got some terrific chowhound scenes in it.
I really howled with laughter when the scenery changed from Lousiana to a posh resort in Europe and we meet Gerard Depardieu as a superstar French chef who has to deal with 'foodies' who demand he leave out butter and all the good ingredients. Rent the movie - it's fun.
