Re: “One-Night Stands

First of all, Diana Ross was not "horribly miscast." She appealed to Berry Gordy for the role in 1976 when the successful Broadway play of the same name (with Stephanie Mills) was purchased by Motown.

Secondly, Richard Pryor was hardly "wasted". He did a fine turn with bad a bad idea.

Thirdly, Michael Jackson is anything but "dumb" in his ridiculous costume, who could barely read his lines, more less rmemorize them

And lastly, the film, although initially "bombed" with preview audiences, it eventually made it's money back for MCA/Universal (the companies who purchased Motown in 1988), who sold through their lucrative video arm. How anyone could stupidly compare a thorough American classic with a remake made 40 years later is dumber still
