Such a great movie that isn't on anything to watch it!!!
11 June 2020 | by rmckinley-77021See all my reviews

I remember watching this when I was a young teen, it was so so good I could not get up to even use the restroom. It was on HBO and was not any DVRs then so couldn't pause it rewind it like we can now. I just wonder why it isn't on anything like regular TV, hulu or Netflix.
