Terrific movie!!
30 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 15 years old when I "accidentally" saw this movie. As I recall, my boyfriend decided to go out with his buddies that night (a Friday), leaving me home alone with nothing to do. Well, fate knew what it was doing, because "Off the Minnesota Strip" was such a great movie that I've remembered it ever since. It was also the 1st time I'd heard of Mare Winningham, and thought she did an excellent job in her role. Like the other people who posted comments, I'm wondering why I've never seen this film again? For years after it's premiere I scanned the TV Guide, hoping to find it being re-run, but to no avail. Unfortunately, it's way too easy to find stupid movies that received horrible reviews being shown over and over....but why not this one? Who do we have to contact to convince them to air it again???
