Typical 80's cheese, but a good story with good music and a happy ending
4 December 1998 | by (Upstate NY) – See all my reviews

Joey is your typical cheesy 80's movie, but nevertheless is one of my favorites. It deals with a young guy finding love and mending a broken relationship with his father. A sub plot is the father putting his life back together in the aftermath of his wife's death. If you like Do-wop music, Joey has a good bit of it.

I don't remember Joey ever being in the cinema. I saw it as a high school kid on HBO and have probably watched it 20 times since. Joey truly is a cheesy movie, but it is also very much a feel good movie. If you're not a big fan of the 80's, Joey probably isn't for you, but if you are it is definitely a must see.
