Low-rent Shenanigans
25 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Linda Blair does look pretty cute in this, which makes any romance between her and Langston a bit of a stretch. Langston gets off one or two good one-liners, but this film is guilty of sort of romanticizing or playing for cuteness the life of the homeless. I will say I remember when this film was actually playing in theatres. It came to Atlanta for a week or two when I was in high school. All told, not a success, but a good sort of underdog movie with a heart.
