    It's mind boggling:blizz:

    5 ’80s comedies that should be remade with female leads

    Who you gonna call? How about four female “Ghostbusters”?

    On Tuesday, news broke that “Bridesmaids” director Paul Feig had found his cast for a women-led “Ghostbusters” reboot. Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig, who both worked with Feig on “Bridesmaids,” will take part, as well as current “Saturday Night Live” cast members Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

    We’ve still got a ways to go until the funny ladies light up the screen — the film hits theaters July 22, 2016 — so in the meantime, let’s brainstorm which other classic ’80s comedies we’d like to see revamped with a bit of girl power:

    ‘Twins’

    Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito hilariously starred as an unlikely set of twins separated at birth in the 1988 laugher. For a revamp, why not posit Rose Byrne — who has held her own in movies like “Bridesmaids” and “Neighbors” — in the Schwarzenegger role, pairing her with the whip-smart “SNL” breakout Aidy Bryant in DeVito’s part.

    ‘Trading Places’

    Audiences and critics alike loved the 1983 comedy about a bet that intertwines a white-collar guy (Dan Aykroyd) and a street con man (Eddie Murphy). Regina Hall, who stole 2014’s “About Last Night” from Kevin Hart, would make a perfect modernized Murphy. As for Aykroyd’s part, let’s cast Anna Kendrick — who, with her self-proclaimed “bitchy resting face,” would take the snobbery level to new heights.

    ‘¡Three Amigos!’

    Steve Martin, Chevy Chase and Martin Short brought the laughs in this 1986 comedy as silent-film stars who are mistaken for real heroes. A modern reboot with funny ladies of the moment Mindy Kaling, Lena Dunham and Aubrey Plaza would kill.

    ‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles’

    Steve Martin played the about-to-burst straight man to John Candy’s bizarro in 1987’s ultimate road-trip movie. Cast Tina Fey in Martin’s part and her buddy Amy Poehler as her loony counterpart, and you’ve got a blockbuster.

    ‘Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure’

    In the 1989 sci-fi comedy, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter starred as two doofus high schoolers who time-travel in a phone booth to learn some history. Real-life pals Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone could bring a fresh perspective to the stoner classic.

    No one will write anything original anymore....It's like dazzle 'em with eye candy special effects or rehash old movies in the name of inflating their bottom line

    They all look horrible. Do the studios try to lose money?

    The brown one, Mindy whatever. They seem to try to portray her as sexy or funny. Neither of those are applicable. She's foul.

    the only one to make Three Amigos worse is for it to star women.

    How about they come up with some new idea if there is that big a demand for a movie with women comics
