I meant to get the original (1958) but got the TV movie. It's very confusing -- design is simple, cast is fine, and production smooth, but the CGI is comically bad. Women are consistently attractive and dressed for it, and men are consistently unattractive. The plot is about a pathetic woman who suddenly grows to 50' and develops a spine and (justified) anger issues. But there's no logical correlation between her two changes -- if she just stood up to her normal 5' 10" and stopped accepting all the abuse she swallowed before growing, she could have solved most of her problems. So the giant size is a pointless irrelevance. I will watch the original but don't expect to appreciate this remake any more afterwards.
