Great 80's fun!
4 September 1999 | by (Robertson, South Africa) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie 13 years ago and ever since it has had very sentimental value to me.

Apart from a quite nicely planned plot, with everything falling nicely into place, if you are a fellow 80's fanatic, this movie has got to appeal to you. The fashion throughout the movie is unmistakably 80's! Especially Debbie!

The small romantic element is so endearing, with a little bit of suspense and quite a few funny moments throughout the movie, make this really a fun movie to watch, with the nostalgia of it all, you just have to like Jack, David, Debbie and Angie's interesting day at "Fun Park"!

Ok, so this movie is no high-budget dreamboat, but the fun and originality of it, more than makes up for it.

I'll admit I'm quite biased when it comes to anything that's got 80's in it, so I'm the first to admit that an 80's sceptic won't be impressed with this movie, but you won't know for sure until you try!

Watch this one, and have fun, or be disgusted but do watch it!
