Standard vacuous '80s love story.
19 August 2002 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

Meg Foster plays a 30-something photographer/artist. Douglas Greenall is a 19 year old adrenaline junkie who races motorcycles. They fall in love and encounter the usual relationship problems. The only thing that saves this film from being a total waste is the appealing nature of the two leads. Other than that, however, this is strictly an unremarkable love story which has been told countless times before. 3/10
