Newt's movie review

This movie was great in the 80s. If you saw it then, don't go back for nostalgic purposes because you'll just be disappointed.

Points of interest:
- Tom's hair
- the end of this movie is the beginning of The Firm

Ripley's movie review

Tom was almost manic for large parts of the movie. Scary, really.

The movie isn't terrible but it's certainly not great. The soundtrack is alright though and Tom smiled a lot so that made it bearable. Only watch it if you're bored, procrastinating (like me), or a huge fan of Tom.
