    I love how they censor Hitchc*ck's name in the comments. Hey guys, does anyone want to see Hanc*ck? Smith acts a bit c*cky in that movie, but it's c*ck-full of laughs.

      I'm not a big fan of the original. It's good. But not a huge classic.

          Two things I don't believe in: Sequels and remakes. While I don't think this movie holds up as well as other Hitchc*ck classics (weird considering its his only Best Picture win, or maybe not so weird if you consider the Academy's track record), a remake is simply out of the question.

            last I heard about the Birds remake was that they were having trouble with money, which was a month ago.

                    Interesting, and a very unusual pick of Hitchc*ck's to choose and remake, even though you can't remake Hitchc*ck, but meh. It be interesting, i'm just going to hope Tim Bevan doesn't cast his fav actor in this which is Rowan Atkinson
