My wife called the cops, I got a little banged up.
How's the car, is the car alright?
Yeah, the car's fine. I got it down at Dawson's Garage, I paid to fix the windshield, that was my fault, but Dawson's gonna make you pay for the tire.
Yeah, fifty bucks!

I didn't want to go see this movie back in '87 with my kids, but I was dragged into it. The movie was awesome then, and it still remains a great movie. Why? The music. Anyone even remotely interested in "The Blues" as a music genre should have this DVD in their library. Not only do you get some great blues music as part of the scoring, the incidental Blues Club Scene, vintage Chicago, pulls this out of the ordinary to a slam for music lovers.
And, ... how about the straggling scene after the credits, which is standard today. Heck, I'm in my 50s, and I still have to pull this movie out to hear the harp licks.
