When Putnam arrives at the Video Armageddon, Lucas is standing on the steps of the building. Lucas tells Putnam which way Corey, Jimmy, and Haley ran. But up until this point, Lucas and Putnam have never met, so Lucas should not have recognized Putnam. This is incorrectly regarded as a goof because even though there was never an on screen meeting between Lucas and Putnam when Putnam was on the phone with Mrs Bateman he stated that, he had got it from this kid named Lucas that they were headed to the convention. This was the same scene where he has the tow truck guy tow Sam's car. Lucas would be able to recognize Putnam on the steps See more »
I grew up with this movie, and i never get tired of it, even now.Watching it reminds me of the good ol' days as a kid growing up in the 80's. The plot seems a little out of left field but under the right circumstances could probably happen.
Great performances are given by Fred Savage as Corey, Christian Slater as Nick the typical teenage older brother and Beau Bridges as Sam the good hearted father(reminds me alot of my father).
When it gets down to it The Wizard is a great movie for all ages to enjoy.
5 out of 5 stars.
