both more and less than the title implies.
on April 24, 2013
The 80's had lots of cheese to spread around, the styles were silly, the hair impossible to maintain, and the cocaine and money flooding the streets made everyone crazy for both. Peter Weller is cool and strong, Kelly Mcgillis is hot and insecure, and the bad guys are just bad enough to believe. there's good dialogue, the author who's name i forget narrates just fine, and we are given a voyeur's insight into how the big picture is affected by the little one. love and jealousy is mixed with politics,violence and sex. the flashbacks of the Dominican Republic and dream sequences give the film an extra dimension. it drops off fast at the end, we are supposed to believe in happy endings, which we are cautioned away from in the beginning so the film is flawed. worth $2 bucks to rent, if you like this, check out "Band of the Hand."
