One of my favorite Amazing Stories episode
3 April 2008 | by (philippines) – See all my reviews

This was right after I saw "Back to the Future" and I really loved that movie at the time. I wasn't disappointed with this one. Funniest joke in the movie is when Masterson gives Coffey her bag and he falls down from the weight. "What do you have in here? A sledgehammer?" and when they reach the mausoleum, yes she did have one! Men will do things because of the promise of sex. I never forgot that. From Used Cars to Back to the Future, Zemeckis always had wicked humor. I even enjoyed his flawed "Death Becomes Her". In this TV episode, we get to watch concentrated Zemeckis, and the lack of need to put in a happy ending is quite liberating (and more consistent with his brand of naughtiness).
