5.0 out of 5 stars Grandview USA January 15, 2012
By ozzy
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have had this movie on VHS for years and i wanted it on DVD or Blu-ray and i looked for years and i even put it o Amazon's wish list. When i was ordering some DVD and Blu-ray for Christmas, i found that Amazon had it on DVD so i ordered it. the picture is good and the sound is good, Patrick Swayze and Jamie Lee Curtis had good chemistry in this movie. I hope they will bring it out on Blu-ray.Amazon is the best, but it from them.

4.0 out of 5 stars An All Star Cast! May 13, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
The production quality isn't the greatest...but an early great mix of talent. I was suprised to see C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and John and Joan Cuzack in a movie together.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice surprise February 5, 2012
By George
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was a very nice surprise. Normally when older movies are newly released upon DVD, they suck. This one totally doesn't.

It has a great picture and sound. The color really jumps out.

It even has subtitles.

This was cool.

Jamie Lee Curtis plays the owner of a Demolition Derby car track. C. Thomas Hall plays the teenage boy who has problems with his girlfriend and ends up falling for Curtis. Patrick Swayze plays another guy who falls and ends up with Curtis.

Not a A rated movie, but good for a B movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy to see this finally made it to DVD October 3, 2012
By Tom L.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had fond memories of this movie and was happy to see it finally arrive on DVD. While it was probably not an "important" film in any respect, the acting was very good and they really captured the small town vibe very effectively. Anyone who ever drove or attended a local race track is sure to feel the tug of good memories. Patrick Swayze's scene with the front end loader is worth the price by itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best So-So Movie You'll Ever Watch! April 20, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We can't say this is the best movie you'll ever see, but we love it! Why? Because it was filmed right here in our home town of Pontiac, Illinois in the mid 1980's!

It has a lot of famous actors, just prior to them breaking into the mainstream. We even watched scenes being filmed around town when we were kids.

It's a fun movie with a story that could have been put together a bit better, but we love it because it's 95% filmed in Pontiac, Illinois U.S.A.

Grandview U.S.A. is really Pontiac, Illinois U.S.A. A great small community in the heart of America!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this movie August 16, 2014
By Sueg
Format:DVD
I ordered this because of Patrick. I love this movie. Its about three people, a teenage boy, a young woman and a young man. It starts out with the teen going to a prom and ends up getting his father's car in the river. He then has to get a tow truck to tow the car out and this where he meets the girl (Jamie Lee) and the young man (Patrick). Jamie Lee is trying to run this old run down race track going. This race track is that the cars run into each other. Patrick is one of the race drivers. So this teen just thinks that Jamie Lee is the hottest girl that he had ever seen and visualizes her in sexy outfits. Jamie Lee is having a hard time keeping the track running everyone is trying to put her out of business. She try everything that she can. She goes to the bank, goes to the counsel meet and they won't listen to her, but the teen finds that his dad is behind her not getting help, because he wants the land. The young teen helps the girl out. The young girl takes the teen In for the night. Patrick who is also interested in her gets mad, yet he is married, but its a troubled marriage. One thing happens after another and in the end Patrick takes back hue. He totals his wife's car and crashes into his house. In the end Jamie and Patrick get together. I found this to be funny, but there is some nudity in it.
