When this movie came out, the usual pooh-poohers whined and complained about how it had a dumb script, a paper-thin plot, and cardboard characters. I wanted to smack them all upside the head for stating the obvious. Duh! That's the whole point! Patrick Swayze has made some very good dramas (Ghost, City of Joy), and some very cheesy ones (To Wong Foo) and he knows the difference. Anyone who tries to take this movie seriously is missing the point. This one is a terrific guilty pleasure, with over-the-top performances by Swayze and his musician co-stars (Meat Loaf, Randy Travis), and some spectacular chase scenes complete with some truly cheesy touches (every automobile that crashes explodes, regardless of whether the gas tank is actually damaged or not). Trust me, this one's worth checking out, as long as you check your brain at the door.
