The pre-"Mumford"
13 March 2000 | by (Ohio, United States) – See all my reviews

I knew that when I first saw a trailer for the Kasdan film "Mumford" that I'd seen it before. I even knew the name of the movie and who starred in it. That sounds pretty pathetic considering it only has ten votes to date and I think at least five of those belong to my brother and I (we thought it should at least have star rating). A movie can't truly exist until it has a star rating on the IMDb. Anyhow, I'm not saying "Hometown Boy Makes Good" is a masterpiece, certainly not, but it is an original (provided no one tells me otherwise). And who could turn down a movie with everyones favorite nerd, Anthony Edwards.
