John Hughes, It doesn't get any better (by Rockntwin)
I must say that any John Hughes movie I have ever seen, I loved! Every character and plot line rocked. He is by far the best. Only being born in the 80's I am still able to appreciate his work. Any movie of his, was quickly repeated to watch over and over. Even the music is excellent!! How can anyone dislike him?! I would love to one day shake that mans hand for his fine creations. Mr. Hughes is a talented man to write several movies within a few days. If they sucked, then you tell me why they are being sold in the stores! My current favorite is Career Opportunities. It goes back and <more>
forth from Pretty In Pink to The Breakfast, and then there is Sixteen Candles. Those are the top four.
Hilarious,goofy,and altogether likable movie.John Hughes hits a home run ! (by knightsend2k1)
Very funny movie about a simple minded young man who's simply afraid to move out of his parents house because he doesnt want to be alone.To make up for his lack of an interesting life, he constantly lies to the only people who he can let his imaginative frustrations run wild with - the neighborhood kids,who idolize him.Does he realize this ? Of course not ! Will he ever learn ? ....Maybe.. Frank Whaley is hilarious as the inept but good hearted Jim Dodge,delusional liar and big dreamer.Jennifer Connelly is absolutely beautiful as the rich,understood Josie McClellan.John Hughes is <more>
brilliant once again,and this smart quirky story shows he truly understands what it was like to be young.Those who were in their twenties in the nineties will laugh their head off as well as wish they were and were not Jim Dodge at different points in the movie. If you liked Mannequin you should get a kick out of this as well.
Ok out the way the films not what you would call the best . However Jennifer Connelly will break every heart from the moment you see her . Smoldering hot with just the right infliction in ever look to ruin marrages , destroy relationships etc etc . Almost unwatchable due to not being able to follow the plot ...watch the roller skating part to see what i mean .Oh the film , something about a loser who gets a job in a store , robbery etc etc . You will come away wanting to watch again , not for the acting but for the romanticism and tight white T shirt .
Keep the Curl and the underwear. Lose the plot. (by Crowbot-2)
This could of been a Hughes all time classic, I enjoyed it right up to the part Whaley stopped parading around in his underwear, oh this sick mind of mine. I'll say it loud and clear to everyone who has failed to realize it, " Whaley Rules! ". I think this movie loses what ever it had going for it, when a straight forward plot, which leads to lotsa dead writing, and a film that seems rushed together to make air time. This could have been a wonderful impromptu, since Whaley is a natural riot, and Connely can hold her own. But instead we get a lesson in bad writing, crippled <more>
production, and wasted casts. Oh what this could have been.
Heartwarming! Jennifer Connelly was/is gorgeous! (by UniqueParticle)
Very enjoyable early 90's film written by the late John Hughes, R.I.P.! Frank Whaley was a delight to watch goof around at his job. Also William Forsythe was good as the menacing serious previous custodian. I met him once, I kinda wish I got his autograph. Lovely chill movie, yet again like other movies, I don't understand the complaints.
A movie I'll remember for ever (by SanDiego_M22)
I don't know what was up with that other guys comment. It's intellectual rants like that which were the cause of him probably spending most of his high school life stuffed in a locker. Anyways... What's so great about this movie is the characters. I was in love with Jennifer Connely long before this movie, but this movie made her go to my top 5 beautiful woman of all time list. She looks so good in this movie. The main character is so believable, sometimes the dialog seems a little too set up. Every guy who grew up in the late 80s or grew up in a similar type town can relate to <more>
this movie. Anyone who has worked in a store after hours has either done or thought of doing what happened in this movie. Also Hughes does a good job of living out every young mans fantasy of being locked in a place with a beautiful woman. Or having a chance to get with the hottest girl from school or in town. There's so many things to this movie it would take me forever to write it all. The music goes along with the movie perfectly. It also really adds to scenes that would be kind of boring otherwise. John Candy is great, the janitor is awesome, he does a great job for having such a small part. Mcdermot is pretty weird in the movie, it's hard to believe it's even him. A totally contrast from his characters in recent movies. The whole idea and story of the movie is well told and played out. I think the movie is entertaining from beginning to end. Anyone who had a hard time dealing with having to grow up will be able to relate to this movie.
Lose the Curl but not this fine guilty pleasure of a flick! (by g-man-22)
Okay, so this one never did and never will win any awards. But pound for pound, John Hughes was never better and never will be again, most likely. Yes, I know, I know. "Ferris B." is a more coherent, cohesive film. And "Breakfast Club" has all the lines. And "Pretty in Pink" has all the pathos, plus Ducky. But this one's got Jim Dodge F. Whaley . Easily one of my favorite film creations ever. You can't not love this guy. Even in the usually dumb montages that plagues MTV-ish films of this nature, he's charming wearing a veil and cow-boxers and <more>
rollerskating, for instance . And then there's Jennifer "Eternally Easy on the Eyes" Connelly who, yes, has her usual charms both of them , but who manages to bring a degree of wit, grace and sincerity to the "girl next door anyone would die to get with" role that's rarely been matched since. This film's full of terrific lines and memorable moments. Jim's "Jimget" fantasy. John Candy's entire cameo. "Could I get this uniform washed, it...smells a little like Darnell." "You mean you've never heard of sashimi?" "The subsonic tummy bump..." The list is endless. The bad part: yes, the last 15 or so minutes are plagued by a lack of money and a lack of laughs money as in it looks like they ran out and decided to end the film...now . But the two leads are terrific together and the idea of them hashing out their high school trials and tribs in this particular setting is quite effective, really. Sweet, simple, goofy and funny, this one deserves another look, despite the "run out of steam in the last stretch of the race" factor.
Jennifer Connelly - WOW! The movie itself was also alright. Also this movie is about Acting Skill (by Jakemcclake)
Spoilers The phrase "Jennifer Connelly Wow" can be found all over the internet. Hollywood had never seen the likes of Jennifer Connelly before. She is an incredible beauty. I write this 18 years after this movie came out and she still is the hottest woman in Hollywood. There are favorite scenes of Jennifer - The roller skating scene and the rocking horse scenes are near the top for most guys and they are all over Youtube. Jennifer can really distract a guy from seeing what takes place in this movie. The first 20 times I saw this, I had the following questions: 1 Does Josey <more>
McClelland Jennifer Connelly really like Jim Dodge Frank Whaley ?2 Since Jim Dodge is considered the town liar and can not seem to hold a job, what does Josey McClelland see in Jim Dodge? What kind of future could she possibly see with Jim Dodge? 3 If Josey likes Jim so much, why does she leave him in the store and drive off, when she steals the crooks' stolen car? Consider, Josey left Jim locked in a store with two angry criminals that subsequently began to look for him with loaded guns.Answers - Well the answers are demonstrated and shown by where the movie winds up. 1 Yes - Definitely!2 She sees that he is honest with her, except for not admitting to himself as well as her, that he does not want to live at home, and he is misunderstood by everyone in this little town including his parents, and everyone sees that Jim is doing something but they call it lying. But Josey has a similar talent and therefore, understands what Jim is good at, and where they need to go to take advantage of their talents. 3 She knows that those two stupid crooks have easily fallen for Jim's lies and acting previously - They are in no way a match for the talents of Jim Dodge. Consider the fantasy from the leading male or Jim Dodge prospective that those answers prove out: The sexiest woman comes into your store and is locked in with you for the night. The incredible beauty falls for you, big time, and she sees something about you that no one in this town ever saw. She knows that you are better than any problems that might come along, much better. Because she shares this talent with you The talent she sees in you has been on display for everyone to look at and you even have a nickname pointing to it, and somehow no one ever looked at the positives related to it, except her. Then you give her a point blank demonstration your talent, showing how you can convince two killers by talking into a radio that you picked off the Target shelf and then talking into some little red book, that they are surrounded by men with guns trained on them. This makes her jump for joy, literally. She knows the answer that you don't. The answer she forces you to see, move! You are lying to yourself in thinking you like living at home. Get out of your parents house and get away from this little town and find a place that people appreciate the fact that you are the world's greatest "liar". someone who can easily and naturally make people believe something you are pretending to be. You are therefore, a super talented ACTOR! You go through the town in one last view of it with her than without even saying goodbye, you move out of your parents house and together with her you go to you guessed it, the place where actors go Hollywood, California, where the story ends up.
Explain to me why after this Frank Whaley did not turn into a huge star? This is as good a turn as Matthew Broderick's in Ferris Bueller. Whaley carries this film with a swagger that defies belief. We've all known total BS artists post-high school like this. The opening scene alone is worth the price of admission. Definitely one of John Hughes underrated gems. Add to that the fact this will remind you of how hot Jennifer Connelly used to be before she got all stick figure on us in her adulthood. The violence I think really we could have done without. It seems a crutch many American <more>
flicks fall back on. I mean, how many comedies seem to want to put guns in them? Sorry, but how often does the average person actually see a gun pulled in their lifetime? It was really unnecessary to have the whole trapped in the store after hours and then have Connelly and Whaley held hostage.
