John Cusack really likes to be the dumb guy that gets the smart girl in movies huh? Or is it just this movie and Say Anything. I don't know, either way he plays it well. I mean, really Alison Bradbury (Daphne Zuniga) and Diane Court (Ione Skye) might as well be the same person, and Say Anything might as well just be the sequel. But really, this movie was made in 1985 and theres no mistaking that. There is a road trip to L.A involved, a lot of old college cliches, and actually its NOT all that funny, who would have thought.
EVERYTHING about this movie was absolutely awful. A true story about a little girl who has probably never acted before in her life who loses her dad after some sort of a freak accident and starts talking about herself in third person? That's the movie? In summary, nothing ever changes, it's always sad, the acting is always awful, and the dialogue was written by a third grader who watches a lot of Passions. Awful, it'll put you in the kind of mood that you never thought you could ever be in. awful.
also, i couldn't find the movie cover which is no surprise (since i did find this movie at the thrift store next to the movie "mermaids" which is actually good.) so instead i put a picture of this weird disney mermaid contemplating on a rock., or what might as well be a rock.
