Newt's movie review

Ahh, the air guitar in the underwear scene! This movie has a place in history for that moment alone.

Tom had those too-tight (Jordache?) jeans, those dark shades, some classic one-liners, the hooker, and the car. It's a teen boy fantasy complete with Guido the Killer Pimp. It's got one of the worst chase scences ever, and there are a few too many Tangerine Dream filled long moments, but it's still worth watching at least once.
