Weird in a Wonderful Way
15 May 2007 | by (Portland, OR) – See all my reviews

Admittedly, I first found this film while looking for more C. Thomas Howell vehicles (he's such a dream in The Hitcher, isn't he?), but I was blown away by what I found. This movie actually features a romantic relationship between Tom Howell and Ann-Margret, Kelly Preston as the ultimate whore, tiger wrestling, male nudity, and the oddest William Zabka role I think I've ever seen. (Sweet, dumb and Southern?) I don't think anyone could defend this as a particularly amazing film, but it has a lot to offer and will surely entertain you in a slack-jawed kind of way. Great for 80's fans, better for Ann-Margret fans, and absolutely perfect for anyone who's ever longed to see a little of Tom Howell's butt.
