My rating: 7/10
Will I watch it again? Yeah, in another thirty years.
It's 1985. I'm a senior in high school. This was one of the greatest movies of all time. Bill Paxton. Fucking hilarious. Anthony Michael Hall and Iian Mitchell-Smith (whatever happened to him? He was great in this). Hilarious. It introduced to the world the AWESOME band, Oingo Boingo. LOVE that song. Had I been a few years younger I would have tried to make a woman using my Commodore 64 and I would have done it, too. Kelly LeBrock. Say it with me...hubba-fuckin'-hubba. Hell, you even get the great Michael Berryman as a crazy biker. I hadn't seen this in more than 25 years. I fuckin' loved this movie. Now? Wow. I remembered an awful lot of of, the dialogue, situations, little things here and there. It was like catching up with a beloved friend I hadn't seen since high school. There's nothing like nostalgia, huh? I was a bit saddened when it didn't hold up as well after all these years. The picture drags in spots but the laughs were still there. Still, I enjoyed albeit disappointed. I've done a lot of growing up in twenty five years. Now I behave like a 26 year old and I've upgraded my computer so I can finish making that woman. BTW, woud it have killed John Hughes to include a teensie bit of LeBrock's cans? Hmmm?
