Quotes

Al Connors: I've got the money, the coke and a picture of your daughter. There's one more thing I need.
Harry De Bauld: What is that, Al?
Al Connors: That's all the information you can give me on this Big Daddy fella. Who is he?
Harry De Bauld: When you say 'who is he?' you're talking about what he looks like and where he hangs out. Nobody knows, Al. That's one thing we can't tell you much about. Very few people ever see Big Daddy. The only thing I can tell you though, he's about six feet two inches tall, has blond, curly hair and, man, you talking ...

Surprised to see it listed!
30 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie almost 30 years ago, shortly after I participated in the filming of it. I don't remember much, but I remember thinking it was pretty good considering it was done with amateurs and almost no budget! But everything is relative, and given the choice today, I would have to say that the only reason I would watch it again is because my name is in the credits. The real life scenes that occurred during the filming of it were definitely more interesting than the movie itself. I did enjoy some of the soundtrack which was written and performed by professionals, a local Miami band called "Brand New". PS The leading lady may not win an Oscar, but she could definitely win an award for her voice!
