Okay? Are you crazy? You almost got us killed! You said you watched me, you said you knew the rules!
I do know the rules.
Oh, for your information pal, that was a *yellow* light back there!
I watched you very carefully. Red light stop, green light go, yellow light go very fast.

A great little film, much better than I was expecting. Jeff Bridges gives one of his best and strangest performances as the "Starman" with robotic like movements and very funny mimicking of human behaviour. Karenallen is wide eyed and feisty. Only sour point is the over saccharine score by Jack Nitzsche, it hasn't aged well and is now a little painful to listen to. Otherwise this is a wonderful and charming film. (8/10)
