I liked the 80s vibe here, because I like 80s movies.
Don't expect much, but I was impressed with Jason Bateman and he went on to do a lot of stuff.
It's your typical teen comes home to find family gone movie, if there is such a genre. Some OK action.
Plot is about what you expect from an 80s action movie, turn your brain off or go MST3K on it. But it serves the purpose.
Dialog is the weakness here I think, there's no imagination here, no flair.
Music is pretty standard 80s synth pop, but hey they actually show the girl playing a Yamaha DX7 synth, one of the most important 80s synthesizers. I would bet that the music in the movie used this same synth as the E Piano sound in one of the songs sounds like the DX& e piano.
