***Due to the recent RT changes that have basically ruined my past reviews, I am mostly only giving a rating rather than a full review.***

A stupid movie about an arm wrestling champ and a runaway girl. This movie could have been a lot better.

Good acting from Ringwald as usual, but the story could use some work. I mean, arm wrestling competitions? Really? It's kinda silly at times. They had good drama with Ringwald's character running away from her abusive stepfather, but then Le Mat's character's arm wrestling scenes just get in the way! Overall, I am glad to have found the video of this so I could see another great 80s performance from Molly Ringwald!
