Ripley's movie review

Interesting movie. The voiceover was eerie at times with Holly (Sissy) recounting their adventures in a "Dear Diary" sort of way. Sheen did a good job of portraying the less-than-brilliant Kit and Spacek was believably naive.

Oh, and Marty was much better looking at that age than either of his two sons. And not just because he had great hair.
