I'm not quite sure why SHR and I stuck this one out. I guess the first half was fun. A young Jodie Foster, Scott Baio playing a nerd, Randy Quaid playing a twentysomething dating a 16-year-old, the guy who played Damone in Fast Times, solid direction, and lots of feathered hair.
But the second half was boring as all get out. That is, until the hilariously tragic ending. I guess I'm okay with having watched this whole thing but I will say that I did read Entertainment Weekly during parts of the last thirty minutes. And the Donna Summer smash On the Radio really drove me insane by the end considering it was featured in pretty much every scene either as the radio smash that it was or as part of the piano score. Insufferable.
Lyne went onto direct Flashdance, 9 1/2 Weeks, and Fatal Attraction over the rest of the decade.
Alright, who am I kidding? The real reason to watch this movie is for the hott scene featuring Angel. Rock the fuck on!!
Go to the 4:15 mark to see what I'm talking about.
