I like this movie but when I bought it it didn't work. My bestfriend she bought it for me too and that one didn't work either. I always want this movie. It's hard to find a one. Amazon is awesome they return my refund for the movie. That's why I only shop at Amazon.

I bought this dvd to test out my new Panasonic Region Free DVD Player and "Touch & Go" dvd disc looks great! It's one of my favorite movies with Maria Conchita Alonso and Michael Keaton, they have chemistry together.

I enjoyed this movie. It is smart, sassy and entertaining. It contains a nice mix of seriousness, humor, human nature and an easily followed storyline. The three main stars are well cast and provide you with a believable performance...with the youngest pretty much stealing the show. As an extra perk for the guys, the female star is very pleasing to the eye! If you like a fast pace and quick changes throughout, you'll have some fun with this one.

One of my fave 80s movies. Thank God it is finally online so I don't have to always have a DVD player around. Good film with a true to form 80s soundtrack. I know it by heart and will continue to watch it over and over.
4.0 out of 5 starsIt's romance, whether you like it or not.

Like Michael Keaton's character, who lists all the ways that his relationship with Maria Conchita Alonso wouldn't work (and vice-versa), it would be easy to think of ways that the film as a whole shouldn't work, but it does, despite being quite clichéd.
The plot: Bobby Barbato (Keaton) is a loner, a self-absorbed professional ice hockey player who lives for the sport, and, whilst not an overly arrogant, nothing-bothers-me kinda guy, he his tough-as-nails and quite distant. Denise DeLeon (Alonso) is a strong latino independent woman, with a wise-talking smart-alec kid in Louis (played by Ajay Naidu - Samir from Office Space), who brings them together through that well-known rom-com plot device, an attempted mugging(!).
The two leads don't hit it off right away--surprise, surprise--but it isn't long into the film when they've slept together, and you're initially led to think that that's that, but that isn't that. The morning after, Bobby's true colours re-emerge as he treats her like everything else in his one-dimensional life. From here on in, both characters begin fighting a losing battle to get the other one out of their life, but not in a congenial, comedic way.
Throughout, there's an ever present threat of violence, which stems from the attempted mugging of the opening scenes, and, whilst the worst of it is not shown on screen, it is implicitly brutal.
The film is not overly sentimental, nor sickly sweet, and it's not as trite as a film like this usually is. It treads an emotional line somewhere inbetween, and, although I definitely wouldn't describe it as gritty, I would say that it is tougher than your average Hollywood rom-com, and that's despite the predictable happy ending.
Also, though the film was described and marketed as a romantic comedy, it's worth pointing out that the film is not heavy on the comedy, and is all the better for it. I think, for these reasons, this film is a good option for those that aren't necessarily fans of the genre, like me.
So, the next time your other half is forcing you to watch something romantic, you could do a lot worse than watching Touch and Go - your 60 pence will have been well-spent.
