Quotes

Nick Deezy: a women, she's dead
Harry Buscafusco: dead? a woman? where?
Nick Deezy: she's easy to find she's the one that's dea... that's odd
Sylvia Pickel: the police must have hauled her off
Nick Deezy: no no no, it's only been 5 minutes and we'd have hear the police. there'd be one of thos chalk outlines of the body
Harry Buscafusco: maybe she bounced, like outta the hotel. women are soft
Sylvia Pickel: a gang! a gang took her away so that no questions could be asked
Harry Buscafusco: so we're discounting the bouncing theory?

Well, the eighties makes you feel just fine..
8 April 2004 | by (Oulu, Finland) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie about 30 times and it always makes me feel good.. I don't know what it is about this movie but it seems to help me through bad times. Theres something in the atmosphere in the film that makes me feel good and the environment where the movie is made is just beautiful. (yeah, sure.. the 'real' film critics are saying that you can't rate a movie just on behalf of the spectacular scenery but FU, I say). I can rate a movie just the way i want to! Isn't that what IMDB is all about? I enjoyed this movie and I hope many others will too. Don't stare at the ratings. If you want to see a fun movie that's not too "serious". Rent this movie and let your brain rest for awhile, just enjoy the the scenery, the acting, the story and the eighties !! Cheers to all from Finland.
