Corey Haim wannabe type flick
5 October 2002 | by uds3See all my reviews

Easy enough to watch if you really got nothing better to do. Very much a RISKY BUSINESS for the 90's. Ethan Hawke has the hots for cute Teri Polo next door but some unsavory associates of his lowlife brother tend to wreck his evening through circumstantial misfortune. Plays rather like a Corey Haim flick with a touch of the NIGHT ON THE TOWN's!

Cerebrally unchallenging but equally, passably entertaining. Having picked this flick up for $2 yesterday at our local video-store's annual clean-out sale, I don't feel like it was money wasted!
