Excellent example of the early 1980's mind set
26 November 2002 | by kikkifijiSee all my reviews

Scruples is a movie highly recommended if you ever seem to feel nostalgic for a time where people were looking into the future completely full to the brim with hopes and dreams, where everything has an extra high degree of romanticism and enthusiasm. The movie itself is a wonderful example of what sort of things we were doing and thinking, with inspiring characters and beautiful sets, a true transition from the old world to the new.
