    Best of the best. Crispin shines in this role. "It's warm even."

    A movie so bad it becomes slightly entertaining. Over the top acting and exaggerated moral indifference makes this movie difficult to watch but at the same time difficult to not watch, I can't completely explain it.

    A simple story trying to be edgy and artistic. It ended up a bore with unnecessary vulgarity for shock value. Saw on HBO.

    Almost 35 years later, this film still stands today as it was then: a fantastic cast of unlikable characters in one of the most overrated films of the 80's. An absolute dimwitted group of kids that somehow seemed to resonate with the times.

    If i asked you, if you seen this movie. Odds are you haven't. I feel sorry for people who over look this movie or never heard of it. It is one of Keanu Reeves best movies from the 80s and showed that he could act in a series movie. It will pull you in from the start and you will want to soak it up until it ends. Don't miss out on this sleeper hit.

    Solid, very dark coming of age movie. Dark humor throughout as well as sorrow. Loved the performances, especially Dennis Hoppers.

    A film so of it's time, which is especially emphasized by the performance of Crispin Glover, which at times borders on the ludicrous. As is often the case, its Dennis Hopper that saves things.

    An absolute classic. Still manages to be thrilling after watching it so many years later. Crispin Glover definitely shines in this, as well as Dennis Hopper. This is a must see.

    The fact that Crispin Glover has a single acting credit following the abortion that was his performance in this film is staggering. It was cartoonishly ridiculous. In spite of how distractingly awful he was, the film is still enjoyable.
