Which remake completely misses the point of the original?

We're in the middle of remake fever, with classic films getting remade at a blinding rate. But sometimes, creators try to hard to put their own stamp on a property — and completely miss what it was actually about. Which movie (or comic, or TV) remake or reboot loses a key point of the original?

Please include a picture or clip of this remake or reboot. And mention the title, and what crucial point they missed. Thanks!


Top image: Amazing Spider-Man was pretty great, but lost the whole "Spidey tries to make money off his powers" element of the Raimi film and the original comics.
