'Hudson Hawk' (1991)
Best part of the original: There is just something awesome about timing out heists to songs like "Swinging on a Star."
Worst part of the original: The gurney ride on a highway where Bruce Willis has to find change for a toll.
Why it deserves a remake: Heist movies are great and clever heist movies are better and comedic clever heist movies are even better than that. At its best moments, "Hudson Hawk" in fact hits those loftiest of heights, but it also goes horribly, terribly, off the rails at other moments. Something that managed to hit the high notes while eliminating the lows could be as timeless as the songs the original used.
