48% Crimes of Passion (1984) Turner acts if she's auditioning for some loopy Mae West impersonation contest. Eyes wide and nostrils flaring, she looks like a doe caught in the glare of a hunter's headlights. Perkins is her perfect body double. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

64% Sex Ed (2014) "Sex Ed" is a likable little comedy that features such a well-conceived and portrayed main character it makes up for the film's slender concept and leaps in logic. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

10% Dangerously Close (1986) Dangerously Close is more than just a stylish shocker. It captures the ugly underside of a new teen-age obsession, forcing us to marvel at its ferocity and shudder at its possible consequences. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

73% Pretty in Pink (1986) These kids have a bumpy ride, but this is one film that identifies with their passions instead of indulging them, giving us a perfect back-seat view of kids out cruising, not for kicks but for a hard-earned sense of pride. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

45% Three Amigos! (1986) [Three Amigos is] a goofy delight. It's like a cross between a big-budget Three Stooges movie and a Hope-Crosby road picture, with dozens of old cowpoke gags thrown in to spice up the brew. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

80% Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986) What should've been a joyful romp turns into a stale, sour-edged celebration of the New Conformist, an affluent, technology-addled cherub without a rebellious whim in his brain. - Los Angeles Times EDIT

92% The Fly (1986) What makes The Fly such a stunning piece of obsessive film making is the way Cronenberg deftly allows us to identify with his monstrous creation. - Los Angeles Times EDIT
