Trivia

Sylvia's shotgun is the infamous "Brute" manufactured in Brazil as a full size double barrel hunting gun, and imported by F.I.E. of Opa-Locka, Fl. (Miami). F.I.E. re-manufactured them by sawing off the barrels to just over the minimum legal length, and cutting off the butt stock behind the pistol grip, again to just over the minimum legal overall length. The Brute is legal to own and can sometimes be found for sale used. A later successor, the "S.O.B." (Son Of Brute) was a single barrel shotgun that got the same treatment. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning of the movie when Burt (Learner) is squeezing between the rocks at the mountain pass and turns towards the camera, the studio lights can be seen reflected in his dark glasses. See more »

Absolutely Loved It
17 January 2005 | by (Belle Plaine, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie in the theater when it was first released in 1988. I was 10 years old and my mom took me and my cousins to see it. It has been an absolute favorite of mine ever since. I used to have it on a VHS tape, recorded off of HBO or some other movie channel. That tape had been viewed sooooo many times it became degraded and was all fuzzy when I went to play it. I recently, after several years had gone by since I'd last seen it, began searching for a DVD copy. Much to my chagrin, I've learned it is not available on DVD (which I really want for the obvious reasons, plus, then it could be widescreen.) I finally bought a used copy of the full screen VHS tape. I still love it after all these years. In fact, my niece(age 10) and my nephew(age 11) just watched it with me tonight. They liked it as well. They thought it was very funny (but, not as funny as "Transylvania 6-5000" - which we watched on DVD last week). My nephew was particularly amused by Cyndi Lauper's acting - he thought she was great. This movie rocks and even goes beyond the generation gaps! I still consider it one of my favorite movies of all time!!!
