That's the problem with all of "Vision Quest" -- when the movie ends with Louden narrating off-screen his "live for today" philosophy, it's plausible in his mouth, a joke for adults.
A movie with some nice surprises, mostly because it takes the time to create some interesting characters.
I would hardly be the first critic to suggest that its rote sports-movie structure and the presence of Linda Fiorentino as an implausibly available older woman masks Vision Quest's strange homoerotic subtext.
Its saving grace is the understated and uncanny performance by Modine.
sappy but enjoyable
Matthew Modine's affecting performance makes the coming-of-age flick click.
I heard that Madonna was in this movie, but actually you just see her as a singer at a club in one scene. Anyway, this is a predictable sports romance movie, that tries to be like The Graduate at times. A couple of good scenes, but mostly boring.
A really sweet and a romantic story about a teenage wrestler who is 18 falling in love with a woman who's three years older than him. Loved how Louden never gave up no matter what, and how he didn't lose his friendship with Mr. Tanneran. Awesome music in this movie also!!! Watch It!!!!! Just fantastic!!! Love it!!! A great sports movie!!! :) Just great! :)
I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I initially bought it for Madonna's short appearance, but the story was pretty good as well.
Great soundtrack to this classic tale of High school wrestling, and the first time love of Louden Swain, played by the adorable Mathew Modine. It is a chick flick with the sweet story of his ambition to beat the top wrestler in his county, and how he struggles to prove he can take on this goal and to also prove that he can find romance in an older woman played by Linda Fiorentino, although he has tough times reaching what he wants. Just one of them go getter movies, that has you cheering for him. A cute movie, but made for the young teenagers or the ones that want to relive the 80's. ;) With the opening music from Journey, this also has an awesome soundtrack to make the movie more better. :D
