Echo Park Reviews
Forgotten 80's cult movie, supposedly Quentin Tarantino was a big fan. Eclectic cast includes Tom Hulce (Animal House), Susan Dey (Partridge Family), Michael Bowen (whom Tarantino cast in both Jackie Brown and Kill Bill), Tim Carey (in his last movie), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Cheech Marin, and John Paragon (best known as a recurring character on Seinfeld, whom with his "partner" always terrorize Kramer, questioning why he isn't wearing his AIDS ribbon and stealing the armoire he was guarding).

Stringing it all together is a sort of love triangle - one man wanting her for her body, the other wanting a more meaningful relationship but of course, it's the strong, athletic good-looking one who only wants her for sex but takes her to bed. That's perhaps the problem - the film thinks it's more unique than it is. It doesn't use comedy as well as it could have, and the most interesting relationship that concerns Dey's young son, is totally under-developed.
