Quick flash: Clean and Sober (1988)

Clean_and_sober

Original plot
Michael Keaton does Michael Keaton things while battling cocaine and a massive raincoat.

Big thoughts
Morgan Freeman has been a mentor to three Batmen, including Affleck! He should call up Adam West and Val Kilmer and go for the sweep.

The Random Remake
Remove the obvious anachronisms (pay phones, mullets) and the plot holds up pretty well. Shoot, maybe Smashed is basically a remake with swapped genders and a not-deceased co-dependent. You know what, now I can’t get Mary Elizabeth Winstead out of my head. You beat me to it, Smashed.
