Got lucky to find this 80's Gem
30 June 2010 | by (Zuma Beach California) – See all my reviews

Ran across Off the Mark by mistake while looking up something else so i looked it up on IMDb and based on all the great write-ups decided to track down a new VHS copy(there is no DVD). I Have to say all the positive reviews were right on,this is a very funny obscure 80's film.It's a silly film with not a whole lot of plot and the comedy is indeed in the Airplane style of rapid fire sight and word gags.While its not as awesome as Airplane (what is???) it is much better than most of the wannabe's that came after it.There are some clever gags that are executed well and the writing is pretty good.The actors all do a nice job,especially Clarence Gilyard and Shep the dog.Gotta love Shep! A young Terry Ferrell looks awesome in her skimpy outfits,i had forgotten how good looking she was.After almost an hour,i was wondering why in the world this movie was rated R.There was no Nudity,Violence or bad language-a solid PG-and then all of the sudden...out of nowhere came an awesome (*but short*) girls locker room scene with loads of nice bare breasts.Still not really worth an R. Get this movie,you'll love it. Zep
