A good, hard to find, 80's movie.
1 December 1999 | by (RI) – See all my reviews

If you like stereotypical 80's movies this ones for you. I first purchased this movie because of the character "Amy Curtis," that Juliette Lewis has a bit part as. But I ended up really enjoying it. The characters are all developed well and It has some very funny scenes that keep you watching. If you like 80's culture and the music scene from those days, you should look into seeing this. The movie is very hard to find, sadly, but if you can find it,its worth a see.
