What a great movie!!
15 March 2000 | by (Brisbane) – See all my reviews

I was browsing in the video shop with some friends when one of us came across this movie. It was called "Crazylegs", which you have to agree, is a much better name than "Off The Mark". The cover of the video was so enchanting that we snapped it up there and then and rushed home to watch it. Displaying all the hallmarks of classic '86 humour, and the acting to go with it, this is a fun movie with a touching storyline. An extremely underrated movie with heart.
