Should have been called "Worst Mistake Of Your Life!", 3 May 2004

I was such a huge fan of Jennifer Love Hewitt back in the late 90's.

But this show was so slow! It had boring plotlines. Nothing exciting ever happened.

On "Party Of Five," Jennifer Love Hewitt had a character named Sarah. Although this show was supposed to be a spin-off about Sarah, it seemed like this show was all about Jennifer Love Hewitt rather than her character Sarah.

It's a shame because Jennifer Love Hewitt totally ruled the late 90's. However, the most popular teen icon does not make up for crappy writing and slow plotlines.

Jennifer Garner also co-starred in this show. Who would have ever thought that she'd become the big screen queen she is today?

Tuff Turf (1985)

West Side Story meets the 80's!!, 2 May 2004
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I rented this film because I'm a fan of Kim Richards, who starred in "Escape to Witch Mountain" and "Return to Witch Mountain."

This movie reminded me so much of "West Side Story" because of the gang violence, all the dance numbers, and the events that parallel the story in "West Side Story." You can tell that whoever wrote the screenplay for "Tuff Turf" closely patterned it off of the sequence of events in "West Side Story" and "Romeo and Juliet." A guy meets a girl at a dance, she's part of a gang that doesn't like this guy, and despite being on opposite sides of the tracks, the guy and the girl fall for each other, and obstacles and bad things happen as a result. At the end of the movie, Kim Richards even channels Natalie Wood by picking up the gun and saying "How many bullets are left!? Enough for you!?"

Anyway, if you're a fan of the '80s time period, this movie should be enjoyable. I really enjoyed this movie, it had a good love story, and there was a lot of suspense because you really didn't know whether this movie would have a happy ending or a tragic ending.

I'm surprised Kim Richards never made anymore movies after this. She gave such a great performance, and she had the LONGEST hair, giving her such an edge to her hotness!
