I really enjoy the references back to TPT with Hailey Mills. In the theatre, I think I almost died laughing when the mother-in-law to be came out and said "you may call me aunt vikkie," and it still gets me. There are several, which is a very nice nod, and I think that they updated the film to be current is a way that still made it a good remake. It is similar to Freak Friday. Herbie the Love Bug, I cannot say the same for. Though in all honesty, I have yet to see that all the way through.
