^Yeah, it’s pretty fun. Definitely nails the mood of an 80s DTV movie better than I expected.
I enjoyed this movie quite a bit, though I found it hard to follow at time (I was rather tired when I threw it on.) The cast is a more-than-fun ensemble and for that reason, even if I couldn’t remember the characters’ names, it didn’t matter as long as I kept track of what their role was. I think this is the first Paul Newman film I’ve seen (outside of a filmed version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town, in which, he’s a fantastic narrator.) Always fun to see Robert Redford during his heyday as well. And I certainly got a chuckle out of the various mattes they used to hide the fact that they filmed in and around the Hippodrome at the Santa Monica Pier – big part of my early childhood was spent down there.
I don’t know if I could recommend it but I certainly did like it. 7/10 on my scale, would watch again with the right company.
