You, aimsusie, are a person after my own heart. I love this movie. I remember ditching school to go see it when it was in theaters, and never regretting it. From the opening montage of Christy doing crazy stories, to the scenes inside the newsroom and the press building, to Sully's laugh at the end (Burt's trademark), this movie is a real treat. The fact that this movie has no U.S. DVD release is, as Tracy Flick would say, "an unconscienceable travesty."
I am, however, one of these "I love all movies" types, and I tend to find merit in films where others don't (except in the case of really really bad movies like "Troll 2" and "Manos: The Hands of Fate."). But, seriously, I truly don't understand why anybody would think this is a bad movie.
EDIT: I recently bought this movie on DVD from Amazon. I think it's one of those "DVD on demand" things, but the quality is excellent. It's even in widescreen.
