    I loved this movie, Helen Slater is fantastic as the strong young woman trying to get justice. This is a great adventure, it's a teen road movie and crime drama sort of movie. I love it and I highly recommend it.

    Enjoyable little 80's rebel yell, despite what the critics (and most everyone) said.

    A true 80's tale, starring Helen Slater and her brother that get accused of a crime they didn't commit, and end up being on the run from the law, trying to prove their innocence. Their true rebellion causes other teens to look up to their image as true heroes as they rebel against a crooked law enforcer that is determined to prove they are guilty, although they are not. I thought the story was good, and I enjoyed this movie during it's 80's era. One great tune from Pat Benatar to add a bonus. ;)
