James Toback's long-gestating portrait of a one-track mind becomes bogged down in unconvincing plot mechanics.
The film roams from the Upper West Side to Coney Island to Atlantic City, maintaining a lighthearted style that doesn't quite match the hints of obsessiveness in Mr. Toback's screenplay.
A light and fairly innocuous youth picture.
Pickup's 'little more' is in its quirky characters and its intentionally goofy melodrama.
This is an appallingly silly movie, from its juvenile comic overture to its dreadfully sincere conclusion.
Downey, who worked for one season on Saturday Night Live, has just the right emotional weight for the role of Jack, and the right touch of goofy boyishness to soften his aggressiveness.
Molly Ringwald and Robert Downey Jr. head the unusually talented cast of characters assembled for this small but taut film.
Toback has devised an interesting premise that draws parallels between risking one's heart and one's wallet, but the picture itself risks little.
Features Robert Downey Jr. as a smooth-talking womanizer who meets his match.
A very challenging movie. Downey Jr and Ringwald sizzle.
I know this movie isn't perfect, but I do love it. One of those movies I grew up with staring the beautiful Molly Ringwald as Randy. How much did I want to be her growing up.
Looking at it now, Robert Downey Jnr's character, Jack, is pretty damn sleazy, and not really worthy of Randy, but hey, 80's movie. Good cast. No complaints from me. Although they really could have changed the casts wardrobe for the final scene. Everytime I watch this it bothers me that the two leads are wearing the exact same clothes two days later. Must have been a hell tight budget.
The story is kind of a mish-mash of two different stories, and the dialogue is horrible, but there are a bunch of great actors in the movie. The actors are the only reason to watch it, and they can't even help the movie that much. Overall, it's not a good movie.
Nothing special, but this really finds its own in the second half. The first half is just a little too happy go lucky and silly, but when the love story kicks in between Robert Downey Jr. and Molly Ringwald, it's smooth sailing. The premise is interesting and natural for its release period. It takes the term ladies man and takes it to a more extreme level. RDJ holds all the cards here, his performance is comedic gold with a touch of genuine dramatic acting.
Your typical Boy Meet Girl.. girl sleep with boy then ditches boy, boy tries to get girl back by stalking girl and paying girl's father's gambling debts. Cute.
