Ah, memories...
29 March 2001 | by (Norwalk CT) – See all my reviews

When I was about 10 years old, Jimmy The Kid was on HBO just about every day. I must've watched this movie a good 30 times during the summer of 1984. It was pretty lame, but there was just something about it that kept drawing me in.
