Did You Know?


When Philip is having a key made, the guy making the key holds it against a grinding wheel and then another wheel with wire bristles, used to finish making a key. During all of this, and when he stamps the key with info, it's apparent that there are no actual cuts in the key. It's still a key-blank he's about to hand to Philip. See more »

I kind of liked it
9 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was a little surprised at how vehemently people disliked this movie. I thought it was a really nice piece of fluff and that all the actors were good, especially Ben Masters. I'm surprised he didn't become more famous--reminds me of a young Jim Carrey. Sure, the music was awful, but it was the 80's--most of it was. So were the hairstyles and fashions--but for me that's part of the fun of watching an 80s movie--seeing how ridiculous we used to look. The movie obviously wasn't trying to be realistic, just entertaining....and it was for me. I enjoyed the NYC scenery, especially all the views of Central Park. Buying the hot dog from what looked like a working vendor was also cool.
