Dena R (nl) wrote: I love this film, despite loving the story for many years, and being different in some ways, it stands on its own as a film in a way that is often lacking in adaptations.
Kevin T (nl) wrote: Dark and sad but extremely well done all the way around. Well shot. Well acted. Well directed.
Tina M (it) wrote: The only reason I wanna see this movie is because Topher Grace is really, really hot.
Terry E (nl) wrote: It is years since I last saw this film and it was great that it turned up on TCM tonight. The story is rather simple, nave poor boy goes to posh private school and ends up sleeping with, and falling in love with, his roommate??s mother, even though he doesn??t know who she is. But the movie is more than that. As one of the ??brat pack?? films of the early 80??s it stands out to me for the depth of the characters involved. We know nothing of any of their back-stories, but can make some obvious assumptions as to where they came from. And, more importantly for me, the film ends on such a strange note with Skip and Jonathan fighting then ending up sitting together laughing following the film??s final line ?? ??oh by the way, you??re mum called, you??re dog died.?? This is such a metaphor for men through out the world who will argue and fight and yet an hour later be in the pub discussing football. Aside from being the Feature debuts of Andrew McCarthy, Alan Ruck, John Cusack, Casey Siemaszko, Virginia Madsen and Lolita Davidovich, it is a great vehicle for Jacqueline Bisset and, of course, Rob Lowe who, not only showed his talent as an actor was also pretty fit as well. Finally, if you see no other part of this movie, you have to see the ??tea party?? at the girl??s school which is one of the funniest pieces of slapstick ever.

Sigh.

King L (us) wrote: When I first read Hamlet back I in high school I found it to be an excruciating bore but once I saw it acted on on stage and screen I appreciated and enjoyed Shakespeare's iconic play. I've seen various versions but I especially wanted to see this one because it had two actors from 2 of my favorite sci-fi shows, Doctor Who and Star Trek. David Tennant who was the 10th Doctor in Doctor Who played the title role of Hamlet and Patrick Stewart, Captain Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation played the king of Denmark. What made it even more interesting was the cast dressed in modern and contemporary clothing instead of period costumes from late 16th or early 17th century. The only other Shakespearean play where I've seen them done this was Ian McKellen's version of Richard III.
