Terminal Bliss is not that bad!
13 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

Having just watched and enjoyed Terminal Bliss last night (as opposed to the "couple years ago" that my fellow commentator viewed it), I felt obligated to speak in defense of this maligned movie which is actually a pretty fun flick. Luke Perry is more convincing here as the troubled rich teen than he ever was on 90210, and the movie, while admittedly melodramatic, is effective in casting the sort of grim, suffocative existence of these kids. The final scene following the big climax makes the movie worth watching. Of course, this is not a film to be taken seriously; just take it as a sort of cheesy combo of A Separate Peace and Clueless, and you'll find a very engaging and atmospheric bit of escapist fun.
