All the Right Moves [VHS]
Customers who bought this item also bought
Most films about high school football players usually fall into one of two categories: glossy jock romance or locker-room sex farce. This one defies the odds and scores both as decent character study and decidedly unsentimental sports melodrama. It's not only a helluva coming-of-age yarn, but also, like Paul Newman's Slapshot, it's a bracing look at the hopes and dreams of blue-collar survivors. Tom Cruise plays a mill-town football star determined to escape the same traps that ensnared his parents. Craig T. Nelson, in a terrific villain role, is the coach who takes revenge when Cruise's ambitions drift a little too close to home. Michael Chapman, Martin Scorsese's favorite cinematographer, made his directorial debut with this gritty little winner, which benefits from being shot on location in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and which is set to a great Jennifer Warnes-Chris Thompson theme song. Lea Thompson and Christopher Penn co-star. In 1983, another Cruise vehicle had even better moves: Risky Business. --Glenn Lovell

Great expectations is a modern take on a classic Charles dickens tale. Gwyneth paltro is to p less in it as a bonus.
All the Right Moves -- classic Tom Cruise film about High School Football w/ Leia Thompson and Coach (TV Show I don't remember his real name).
Great Expectations -- classic Charles Dickens novel turned into an R rated movie. I really enjoyed this movie, however I wish they had not used so much nasty language almost every other word out of Robert DeNiro's mouth was the "f-word" or "sh**". It would have been an AMAZING movie if they had left it out.
I really enjoyed both movies. But who thought up this pairing? They have nothing to do with one another. But excellent pricing for two good movies! (at least used were).
