As you may know Warner Bros. Studios have acquired the rights to the S&H story and there's a possibility of a remake or a sequel.

I ask of you, the original fans out there like myself to support a sequel consisting of the "real" cast only and not some cheap cash grab of a remake.

Until September 23, 2002 the petition will be posted at http://www.petitionpetition.com/cgi/petition.cgi?id=3984

Thank you. Cool

P.S. You can also post a message, create a link but most importantly you can Email the petition to all your friends in one easy step.

Walt,

A. The guys from the original Starsky & Hutch are about Burt Reynolds' age. Other than maybe in a Naked Gun 4, why the hell would you want to see an old man playing action hero?

B. If the studios are planning to make a film, no amount of online petitions will be worth a wet fart. Sorry.

If your thread is indeed sincere (and I'm intermittently thinking it's a joke), my advice would simply be to avoid the flick.

Somehow I doubt a big-screen Starsky & Hutch will be a big moneymaker...

...but then again, I predicted that Scooby-Doo would bomb.

PMG (Happy Jew) and DS (Happy Christian)are in their late 50's now. They're simply the 'real deal' that's why so many S&H fans would prefer only a sequel and the not a "Stinky & Crutch" remake with Ben(wanna-be Starsky)Stiller. http://www.upcomingmovies.com/starskyandhutch.html

Note, if you read the petition carefully I used the term "support" and not "prevent" or "stop". It's just a chance for S&H fans that want a sequel to express themselves. So in that spirit the petition is already a success even if WB pukes out a nostalgic "time-warp" piece of...at your local cinema next year. Cool

P.S. I'll refrain myself from commenting on "Scooby Doo" because everytime I do the Webmaster deletes my entire reply.

OK, Walt.

You've convinced me that you're sincere, so I'll gladly sign your petition.

You better remember this when my "Release Popeye on DVD" petition rolls around. Laughing

(Yes, the one with Robin Williams.)

No need to worry Scott, I won't forget. I got to write this down to make sure that I remember, Owe Scott signature for his 'wet fart' Popeye petition. Wink Thanks.


"Hey partner, did you hear of Scott's Popeye petition?"... Wink
