News & Interviews for Times Square
Critic Reviews for Times Square
...the film not only features a killer '80's soundtrack but it celebrates the pre-Disneyfied version of New York City, and Times Square in particular, just as forces like the fictional David Pearl were campaigning to change it.
A time capsule of the Times Square we miss.
Audience Reviews for Times Square
Had never heard of this one, caught it on TV by chance. Was quite surprised to find it's quite a popular, but not widely known cult movie.
Actually, it's pretty bad - Nicky in particular, I found really grating with that voice...BUT... There is something about it. I can't rave, but I can't quite write it off, either.
It has a hinted at lesbian love story at its core, and supposed mental illness. It was probably pretty out there for 1980. The New York setting is cool, but obviously dated.
Actually, the whole movie is badly dated, and not terribly realistic, but I can see why people like it. For me, not so much, one off viewing. But it is interesting.
A great drama with good teen actors, I loved it, and I highly recommend it.
Just had the opportunity to watch this again for the first time in many years. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this film holds up. There are some really great moments and performances. Specifically Robin Johnson as Nicky. Yes, the movie does have its problems. It's little adolescent and melodramatic at times, but then again its a movie about adolescents. Anyway, at the least, this film is a great time capsule of the real Times Square before it became Disney-fied.
