By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | June 22, 2011 | Comments ()

There have obviously been a number of bad remakes over the years, but -- inspired by the Footloose remake -- what we're looking at today are remakes with the largest disparity in talent between the original actor or actress and the actor or actress cast in the same role in the remake. The biggest step down in class, if you will.

9. The Longest Yard: Burt Reynolds > Adam Sandler


8. Arthur: Dudley Moore > Russell Brand


7. Psycho : Anthony Perkins > Vince Vaughn


6. Footloose: Kevin Bacon > Kenny Wormald


5. Just Go With It (Cactus Flower): Walter Matthau , Ingrid Bergman > Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston


4. Are We Done Yet? (Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House) : Cary Grant > Ice Cube


3. The Women: Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell, Joan Crawford > Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes
