Movie Info

Miracle Mile starts conventionally enough, with bashful musician Anthony Edwards going ga-ga over waitress Mare Winningham. After a pleasant if somewhat quirky day together, Edwards and Winningham plan a tete-a-tete at the all-night restaurant where the girl works. While preparing to call her on a pay phone, Edwards intercepts a frantic call from a soldier stationed at a Midwestern missile silo. The message: nuclear warheads have been launched, and it's only 70 minutes to Armageddon! This unsettling news casts severe doubts over the future of Edwards' and Winningham's relationship.

    An everyday guy stumbles into some big, big news: the bombs are on their way NOW. What follows are his attempts to get out of town by sundown clown. Only (and here is where my frustration with the piece begins) one thing or another keeps him from doing that. By the end I felt as if I was being denied satisfaction by a malicious little kid. Interesting, but ...

    Space filler at one time on the old Movie Networks. This film has high ambitious and a ridiculously low budget. As a result, everything takes place somewhere else. It can work. What is not seen is often horrific..but it doesn't work here.

    This movie came on in the middle of the night and scared the hell out of me. Partially because it was so deranged and I couldn't figure out what it was and why I had never heard of it.

    (1989 Director: Steve DeJarnatt) Harry (Anthony Edwards) just met Julie (Mare Winningham) & inadvertently misses his "first date" with Julie through a series of unlikely events. Harry returns to the diner whick Julie frequents and picks up a stray phone call from a son intended for his father. The call is made by a young man working in a nuclear bunker and called to warn his father of impending nuclear missiles launch...which slowly starts an impoosible panic!! Stars Anthony Edwards (Hawks, The Client, Northfork & ER's Dr. John Green) and Mare Winnngham (more to follow)
