(au) wrote: The acting was good but there were scenes I felt had a choppy transition. And in there was my problem: I was falling behind in the story. Was Clara really wacko? Was Walter really cheating? The guy at the book store: just a weirdo or a legit wife killer. Then, finally as the movie comes to an untimely end, there is no end. You heard me. It fades to black. Total waste of my time. What a shame! Susan Boyd, you get a D-

(au) wrote: There were a couple reason I wanted to re-watch this film. One, it has Fred Ward in it. Two, it was directed and co-written by future X-Files, Buffy and Angel producer/writer David Greenwalt. Although this 80s teen comedy is is not up to Buffy/Angel standards, it's watchable with a solid 80s cast that includes C. Thomas Howell, Lori Loughlin, Kelly Preston, Dee Wallace, Leigh Taylor-Young, Fred Ward, Casey Siemaszko and, of course, Corey Haim. You also get a synthesizer heavy soundtrack by Jan "Miami Vice" Hammer.
