Remake - no. Adaptation - poor one. Just not funny. Maybe 2 or 3 lines made me laugh. They went more for sight gag/slapstick humor that really wasn't there. Beyonce' played a minimal part. Actually could have been replaced with any other good looking actress. It really seems like they wanted to use her to help promote the movie. I like Jean Reno - he played the "assistant." He did well but the part was really small and a different role for him. Wasn't use to seeing him clean shaven either. If I had to sum this movie up with one word: HBO.
