My wife's name was Kimberley. One of the first Kimberleys.
My husband had hamsters.
Not as a grownup you didn't. He had hamsters named Arnold and Shirley. And he was always whipping up little salads for them in the Slice-O-Matic and buying them extremely small sweaters at a pet boutique in Rego Park. Also, there was a certain amount of talking in squeaky voices.
Both of you?
Well, he was Arnold... and I was Shirley.

i've got an option facing me of moving my mouse along an array of ten stars that will as intended accurately describe my emotional and critical response to this film. so i'll save myself the trouble of nitpicking and bitshing about this and that and give it a straight ten.
a vintage '80's movie , with scenes of eastern airlines and such , and a very nice closing scene of an eal dc-9 taking off whafting behind it a trail of burnt oil , to the soundtrack of carly simon's itchy bitchy spider (someone said joni mitchell, probably still under the influence of '60's acid). some movies you remember by little things like these - they have no direct influence on plot or screenplay, and yet they're worth gold , a photoflick you'll treasure. 1986 was a good year , and this film has an almost documentary value for those who appreciate the vintage.
