Quotes

Mickey Davis: [Mickey's voice as Scott Muller reads from Mickey's Diary] There are two me's really, Mickey and Michelle. Mickey is this mousy little house frau... Who hasn't taken a real chance in her whole life. Michelle, on the other hand, is up for anything. The only trouble with Michelle is that she lives and breathes only on these pages.

Excellent setting, haunting music that grabs from the start
13 April 2000 | by (london, england) – See all my reviews

I saw this film after visiting San Francisco and the movie captures it's vitality completely. For me Frisco is the best city on earth and I was captured from the start. OK so the plot was unique at the time, but I thought the characters were well cast and believable. Barbara Williams stole it with her beauty, innocence and naivety. For me the passionate love scenes backed up with the Harold Faltermeyer soundtrack was top drawer. I waited 5 weeks for the soundtrack (Germany) and it was well worth the wait. I still play it today.For all these reasons I still tell people this is my favourite film so far.
