If only they hadn't ruined Times Square
11 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People who love:

  • depictions of New York City's Times Square (and New York City, for
that matter) as gritty-as-you please and before it was remade as a family theme park

  • Tim Curry (see him here as a late-night radio DJ speaking to
nocturnal urban denizens in verse from the center of Times Square)

  • movies about youthful rebellion that are half tongue-in-cheek


will get a kick out of this movie. I recommend it, especially if you don't require that you grow spiritually or expand your vocabulary every time you invest 90 minutes in a movie.
