(it) wrote: A film with great potential in terms of storyline :) If it was a bit more subtle with the connection between the characters then it would have kept me glued to the screen, but it was all too predictable in the end :/ nevertheless the performances were pretty much spot on, and the idea's were smart even though only Johnny's sub-story was much more interesting than the other two :)

(gb) wrote: Peter Weller and a giant rat. We need to say no more. It is a fun bad movie from the 80s.
(br) wrote: Creative yes.......boring,slow moving story also but the ending saves it for me.
(it) wrote: It's silly and stupid, but a whole bunch of wacky fun. Steve Martin and Goldie Hawn should do every movie together. They are amazing.
(gb) wrote: Except for Judy's speeches the movie was pointless. The life of a dancer is hard i guess?? And Jimmy Harris was weird. Lucille Ball was gorgeous though.
(us) wrote: An unusual character choice for Robert DeNiro (Mad Dog, Wayne) , in this film he is a sensitive and well mannered cop but when he falls in love with Uma Thurman (Glory) who is owned by Bill Murray (Frank), he will do anything to keep her close and make sure she doesn't go back into Frank's hands.
