A classic 1980s B movie
28 April 2007 | by clawson2000See all my reviews

Yes, it's dumb. And predictable. And the production values are bad (not to mention the continuity). But, darn it, I just love this little flick! The clothes and hair! This was when I first fell in love with Jennifer Jason Leigh - all hot and sweaty with the Louisana heat! The locale is captured nicely, and they obviously all know this isn't "Lawrence of Arabia" or anything.

But I know what really makes this movie stick in mind is the Todd Rundgren score ("Hello, it's me. You-oo-ooo, you know that I'd be with you if I could ...") His first full score, I believe.

Great to put on in the background while you work on another project.
