I just saw the movie for the first time on DVD and after watching it, I turned on the commentary by the director Allan Moyle and star Robin Johnson. Their words point out some of the mistakes made with the project. The director said that he hinted that there was a lesbian attraction in the story but that after he turned in his cut, all references were edited out. This could have added some depth to the film. Between the scene where the two leads escape from the hospital and end up on the subway, there was a scene that showed them dyeing and cutting their hair. Since that scene was cut, there is no explanation as to why their hair suddenly changes color and style between the two sequences. I wish the relationship between the father and daughter was more clearly presented. I did not believe the father was allowed to show the pain he must of felt after his daughter ran away. I also did not believe any radio station would allow a known runaway to perform on the air live and then come and go without alerting the authorities.
What I liked about the movie were the performances of the two leads, they really seemed to have some chemistry together. Some of the antics they got involved were pretty funny. I liked some of the music as well. It shows how funky Times Square was in 1980's. That area is totally different now because the changes promised in the film actually took place. This film almost by accident captures a moment in time.
