5.0 out of 5 stars Grounded Till I'm 40... June 26, 2004
By stryper
Format:DVD
What Jon Cryer had over Matthew Broderick, was his ability to play "Simple Geekieness", in an endearingly awkward sort of way, and in this movie, he's at his most poignant, playing a photography geek, who falls hard, for a women whom he's accidentally photographed, on one of his early morning photography jaunts.
Up to this point, his world had pretty much revolved around his camera, and a dream of using it, to get the money needed to go to photography school in a different city, so he could escape his hum-drum existence and crappy home life, were his mother's new boyfriend is trying to be his "Best Friend", and in peal advice that he doesn't want to hear (as sound and poniant as it may be).
But, enter Demi Moore, a down on her luck rock singer, playing at a dive bar, with big dreams of the big times, hampered by disserting band members, a sleazy bar owner, and very little luck.
And suddenly, Jon Cryer's world changes, as his infatuation grows for Demi, and he becomes obsessed with seeing her dream full filled (whether she wants to let him help her or not). We see his little world, where everything is seen from a distance, through his cameras lens, opens up, and through his struggles to help Demi, we watch him matures from a geeky kid, to a young man
This film has a lot going for it, in comedy of situation, depth of character, and charmingly gratifying story, that makes this a "Must See" film, for 80's nostalgia fans, and any fan of a great comedy with heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY! FUNNY! FUNNY! May 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
If you liked JON CRYER in "PRETTY IN PINK", you'll find him especially charming in this cute flick! As a matter of fact, I found all the characters uniquely charming and clever...DEMI and JON work great together as 'ageless' companions.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as you remember July 18, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie was extremely important to me as a young teenager: the way Jon Cryer pulled off his everyman geekiness really spoke to me during a crucial time in my life. His characterization of Charles Cummings, like so many John Cusack roles, lived on in my memory as proof positive that the underdog with the slight build could not only intelligently put off the bullies around him, but wind up with the hottest girl.

This no-frills DVD is a welcome addition to my movie library. It's a good transfer, and the film is every bit as good - perhaps better? - than I remember it from countless viewings on HBO. Mr. Cryer may have gotten short shrift in the inevitable comparison with Matthew Broderick, but this film stacks up as well against "Ferris Bueller" in terms of geeky-cool any day. Demi Moore is at her '80s best: both demure and sexy, she's the perfect foil for Cummings' affections. The soundtrack is killer, and there's an actual big sigh of relief at the lack of involved menu pages or special features. What...you need a "25th Anniversary Edition" with interviews explaining the detailed plotlines, and what it all means? Pfagh. Watch the film, relive the boy/man you used to be, and be glad that Charles Cummings was there to help point the way.

2.0 out of 5 stars Watchable but cheesy April 5, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie seems very dated. Some 80s movies still play well, but this one seems to suffer a little more from time than others. The basic storyline about a kid who uses his savings to help someone find her future is kind of cute, but the details of the movie are cheesy be it the somewhat unrealistic photography angle, the gratuitous 1980s topless scenes or the obvious lip-synching of Demi Moore. There's just something about this movie that doesn't quite click for me, but it's still not too bad as far as old movies go.
