(it) wrote: Not being a teenage girl, I'm thinking I'm not really the target audience for this film. However, despite this, I did enjoy this fairly standard coming of age story. Ryder is a 1960s teenager who rebels against her mother's unconventional ways by becoming Catholic (they're Jewish) and wanting to become a nun. Christina Ricci plays the younger sister and Cher plays the outrageous mother who "cooks" them hourdeuves for dinners and moves them town to town at the drop of a hat. Ryder falls in love with the hunk from "Sixteen Candles" and Cher finds a good man in Bob Hoskins, and it all plays out how you might expect, but it's well acted with likable performances. Richard Benjamin directed and he's someone I think I want to take a closer look at. I know he made some garbage like "My Step Mother is an Alien" but he also directed some magical films like "My Favorite Year." It had been quite a while since I've seen Winona Ryder in anything (except for a small part in "Black Swan") and I'd forgotten how much I liked her as an actress. It was also funny to see a super young Christina Ricci as Ryder's younger sister in her film debut. There's also a nice score by Jack Nitzsche to top things off. I'd never seen this film before and was pleasantly surprised.

Some highlights from the movie: a psycho kid mechanic, hairy villians in white spacesuits who want to exterminate humanity for...uh...I don't know and Fred Williamson playing around with the bow from Rocky III. 4.5 stars because of the "initiation" scene. While that was amusing as well due to its "high" (read: crackhead) production values, it still is slightly disturbing.

Against all odds, this random string of events and scenes that I honestly spent most of the movie wonder what the point of it all was is so entertaining and the actors so charismatic that I really didn't care. This rag tag failing pro hockey team is completely ridiculous, but Paul Newman along with a strong supporting cast keep the movie interesting. Bonus points for pre-MPAA ratings language and nudity which would likely have been edited out to keep this PG-13. Gotta love the 70s.

(br) wrote: This easily cracks the top ten of worst movies I've ever seen it (also on that list, off the top of my head (Boondock Saints, Domino, Independence Day, Twister). It's bad on so many fronts it's hard to know where to begin. Acting? Atrocious. It's bad enough when Meatloaf is in your film, but even William Macy is awful. And Laura Dern. Cinematography? Good lord. The director thinks that random zooming in and out at inappropriate times lends some sort of gravitas to a situation. Nope, it's actually laughable. The slo-motion flashbacks are particularly cheesy. The "fight" scene is remarkably bad. Story? I know it's based on an Arthur Miller, but this is horrendous. So apparently putting on a pair of glasses is enough to have a longtime neighbor suddenly think you're Jewish. Plus it's a little patronizing to illustrate the evil's of anti-Semitic by telling the the story of persecuted non-Jews (OR ARE THEY?!?!). Hokey imagery? Got it in spaded. "Hatred going around like a carousel". And then images of a carousel! Genius!Hokey, unsubtle moralizing + bad acting + bad cinematography = a classic (not in a good way). I looked up the director to see what else he had done, and sure as shit, it's the only film he's directed. I understand why.
