From this films emotional start , throughoiut it's very engaging storyline, until it's somewhat melo-dramatic ending lies a really fascinating romantic-drama that is derived from the age old line-Do you really know what you hve until it's gone?
This is a movie about mixed emotions. It will also make you feel mixed emotions. The most involving rolke was Kirby"Estevez". He didn't have the biggest role, but it made you feel like he he felt you needed to feel, and share his pain. Know his love for "Andie MacDowell's" Charcter.
The most intriguing role was Billy, "Lowe". He was rude, crude, and sometimes a little sweet on top. He really cared for the rest of them, but couldn't admit his feelings as openly as others.
Now, Jules"Moore", was the most shocking role. Never, well since G.I. Jane, had I seen her act so different, so emotional. So, well Dayum!? Crazy!~ She made you like the movie for what it was, rather then what it wasn't.
As for Judd's role"Alec", he kind of had different emotions. That well varied my opinions on him. He was likeable, more than he was in "The Breakfast Club", but sometimes he wasn't. The times when he was angry, he might have not been angry enough, or too angry, yet when he was nice, and caring, he was pin point,.
Of course the adults scenes were about as cheesy as "The Fly", but the rest of the emotion packed film amde up for that, and eveb though, it was part Melo-drama, that didn't matter. The story was that good.
This is one Brat Pack film, that not only the 80's fans, most likely enjoyed, but others like me might also enjoy, as did I. I give this film "Three and half stars out of Four." I'm not sure about you, but I'd actually reccomend this one.
