ON A SCALE OF 1 TO 10 WHAT DO THE FANS OF THIS FILM THINK?


I SAW IT AT CIRCUIT CITY FOR $6.99 BUT I WANT SOME REAL FROM-THE-GUT INFO ON THIS MOVIE.

I LOVE LEA THOMPSON AND I HOPE IT'S A GOOD ONE.

I'LL BUY IT EITHER WAY BUT I JUST WANT A WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF THE FILM WITHOUT GIVING AWAY TOO MUCH.

THANKS.

I'd give it an 8. I just watched this movie and truely liked it. I also got it at Circuit City for $6.99.

Stacey and Melissa are bestfriends and decide to take a vacation. Stacey has sworn off casual sex because of the fear of getting AIDS and Melissa has only had two lovers and none of them were Mr. Right. They go to a health spa hoping to find nice, healthy, clean guys.

Hopefully that helps.

It's midnight and I don't have a clue. Yeah it's midnight and I still want you.

I like this movie a lot, despite some corny parts (characters talking to the 'audience'). I'd give it a 7. Love the ending.....heartwarming.

HI I LIKE TO TALK IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT MAKES MY MESSAGE LOOK MORE URGENT

I WAS JUST THINKING THAT.

I'd say 8/10 - it's a pretty great little film.

Wait a minute... who am I here?

Love, love this little movie. Always watch it with my "Christmas" movies because the ending is delightful and set at Christmas.




That's a positive bonfire...

i also consider it a christmas movie

So do programmers. It was just on a pay channel.

Sad to see that it gets such a low overall rating. It's cute and has some good points.

Love ADC.

The ending is adorable.

reply

it can only help people watch the movie if people write comments like how it was cute

This movie was adorable! It wasn't perfect, by any means, and it's quite a time capsule of 80's fashions and music, but it was such fun! Dice has never been more adorable, and Jerry Levine's character, Jamie, was such a little hottie. I loved the girls speaking to the camera, and the little flashbacks. I love the ending, too.

An 8 from me, a truly adorable film.

A very easy 10 (of course, to be fair I have seen 19 Lea Thompson films, so I am not exactly unbiased when it comes to her). Top three Lea Films: 3: "Back To The Future." 2: "Casual Sex?" 1: "Red Dawn."

I agree with you. I give it a 10 as well. I love this movie. There is a reviewer on IMDB that said this is the kind of movie critics love to hate and it won't win awards. But, it makes you feeeeeeel guuuuuuud. I couldn't agree more.

I love the character arc of Vinnie. And Stacy's break up scene with Nick.."You don't have to take care of me....". This is when they were making movies where EVERY scene had purpose and was interesting. In recent years, it seems dialogue has gotten less clever (regardless of genre) and they want people to go see movies lured in by the actors/stars. Not the story.

I just finished watching this again. I love this movie as well. It is very sweet.
