I Had "Second Thoughts" After I Went To See This.
30 March 2006 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

"Second Thoughts" is one of 3 movies I decided to see,based on TV ads in 1983. I have to say unlike Bud,the first reviewer here,I was really quite struggling in making full sense of this movie.

Luci Arnaz may have her father's famous name but she really didn't make her character memorable or terribly likable. The rest of the cast turned in fair performances but the overall plot of revenge didn't seem urgent enough and wasn't all that exciting either.

The one thing I found funny in the movie is when the Uncle Sam street performer is arrested by the police and he drives his "weird mobile" (that's what I called it away from the scene. I agree with Bud,it's nothing worth making a fuss over,or even something important enough to try and view it more than 1 or 2 times.

I did kind of have a bit of regret when i got home from the theatre but,at that point in my life,I was trying to steer clear of kid stuff but also trying too hard to show how smart & mature I "thought" I was.

In short,my own fault for not acting my age or using good judgement. (END)
