Implausibility and miscasting plague Wayne Wang's remake of the 1950 comedy starring Alec Guinness. Queen Latifah plays a saleswoman in a New Orleans department store who's diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. Determined to go out in style, she blows her savings on a trip to a European luxury resort so she can meet the superstar chef who works there (Gerard Depardieu). Likable as she is, Latifah can't overcome a tortured mistaken-identity plot, buffoonery on the ski slopes, and enough saccharine dialogue to induce shock. With LL Cool J, Timothy Hutton, and Giancarlo Esposito. PG-13, 112 min.
