If April Fool's Day 1986 were fed through a garbage disposable...the
end result would be this movie. Was this really intended as a remake of
the nineteen eighty-six version? If it was you would never know it. The
entire story has changed, and nothing of the original remains, at least
nothing of any note.
The original aside, we have as usual every stereotype imaginable
presented to us. In stereotypical scenarios that aren't even done well.
Spoiled rich kids kill the "good" rich girl and the fallout destroys
their lives...except nothing is destroyed and nothing in their lives
really changes at all. Never fear though because the rest of the movie
is full of many senseless scenes and pointless dialog. The courtroom
sentencing, the ludicrous attempt at a five minute blurb from headline
news, the stop to use a payphone in a horrible, rundown neighborhood by
the rich kids...and nothing happens, and so on. As the "movie" drudges
forward, the film makers attempt to make us laugh, and fail. They
attempt to scare us, and fail. They even attempt to be politically
correct at some points and manage to fail at it. Thats a new one on me.
Bad story, bad plot, bad execution and a bad script make for one bad
movie. One thing I won't trash is the acting. Why? Yes, it's totally
over the top but I have no doubt that "over the top" is how the actors
and actresses were told to play it. Clearly the filmmakers were trying
to have a "nash your teeth for the paparazzi" type feeling to the
characters. Problem of course is that it's done to the point of making
you nauseous. If it wasn't the directors intent, or the writers, I'm
sure someone would have put a stop to it.
As it stands I think it's clear the writers, producers and director are
all entirely at fault here. I think they might have read the synopsis
for the original April Fool's Day here at IMDb and then said "screw it,
we'll make it up as we go along". It's clear that no matter what, there
was no desire to, and no intention of, doing the original movie
justice...in fact I think they wanted to insult it.
I know, your thinking "there must be something good about this movie".
Well, your right. There is one good thing about it. It ends..

APRIL FOOLS DAY - THE 2006 REMAKE have not seen the original, nore
would I want to after waisting 90 minutes on this garbage.
The acting is horrible, nobody is convincing in their parts, not even
It's basically a teen-slasher-flick without that much slashing and just
snobby rich folks being snobby...
Words can't describe what crap this is.
It's beyond bad.
A similar movie is I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER, but that one is
good which no one can blame this movie of being.
