We were all shook when the reboot of Ghostbusters hit the theaters with an all-female cast. The film featured a comedy dream team made up of Leslie Jones, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig and Kate McKinnon that gave the original cast a run for its money. As if it couldn’t get any better, the arrival of Ocean’s 8 left us thriving.
However, remakes get a bad rap. People sometimes claim they are unnecessary, are just downright awful and/or they don’t bring anything new to the table. However, some reboots can be bomb. Especially when they are given a new life with gender-swapped lead roles. Recently, a slew of gender-switched remakes have hit the big screen with great results. Whether it is comedy, drama or action, these female leads kill the game. Actually, we wouldn’t mind if Hollywood decided to make a lot more.
