Editorial Reviews

When a 16-year-old aspiring photographer pursues a beautiful older woman of 22 in a big way! Thisscintillating romantic comedy stars Jon Cryer (Pretty In Pink) and Demi Moore (Ghost, A Few Good Men) as the unlikely lovers who teach each other a thing or two about life. When Charles Cummings (Cryer) sees a down-on-her-luck rock singer, Laura Victor (Moore), through his camera lens, he immediately falls head over heels in love. Soon Charles is wagering an all-out campaign to boost Laura's career and win her heart, including plastering her face on every taxi in San Francisco as a promotional gimmick. As the two of them help each other come of age, a lasting bond of friendship develops. For big laughs and great romance, it's No Small Affair.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I must admit I'm a Cryer fan. I loved him in "Pretty in Pink" and "Hiding Out". This movie was a major intro for him and he does a fine job portraying a teen that falls in love with an older woman. As he photographs the scenic city of San Francisco some people won't get out of his Ansel Adams type pictures. Lucky for him as one of them turns out to be the gorgeous young Demi Moore. When he meets her and finds out she has a husky singing voice he falls in love and ends up spending lots of money to make sure she becomes well known. A fun romantic comedy that everyone should see at least once. I bought the DVD and the quality is good but it is overpriced since it doesn't contain any extras.

This movie is a bit of a guilty pleasure, silly 80's costumes and all. I especially enjoy Jon Cryer's "coming of age" portrayal. He's true to his love of photography, tolerates his crazy family with wry humor, and follows his own path. But when that path intersects with Demi Moore, his well-intentioned attempts to win her favor are classic. Formulaic or not, he and Demi bring a charm to the movie that makes it a personal favorite over and above some of the more well-known 80's hits by the Brat Pack.

This stars Jon Cryer and Demi Moore in fairly early roles for both of them. While it isn't going to be on anyone's best of all time lists, there are some very funny bits in this film which are clever and do not resort to stupidity. Considering his youth at the time of this, I thought Cryer was excellent in it. George Wendt has a supporting role which he does very well.

This is the first movie that I saw Jon Cryer in. It was a rental back in the VHS days and I'm glad I decided to watch it. Cryer plays a teenager who is more into photography than girls. . . until he meets the Demi Moore character. It's great.
