Newt's movie review

Ok, I finally watched this movie. I'd never seen it before, it was on, MaryAnn wasn't about to change the channel, so I watched it. And it was bad. Just as bad as the preppy 80s tunes and the schlocky story. Kevin Bacon can NOT dance, people! But Sarah Jessica Parker looked good. And Lithgow with hair was worth five minutes of watching. If you really need an 80s infusion, go catch a John Hughes cuz at least the tunes are better.
