I just watched this last night. I thought the presentation was serviceable, especially when you factor in the cost. I think this is the first time I have sat down and watched this movie from beginning to end as opposed to catching bits and pieces of it on HBO when I was growing up.
Complete serious question: Is Lea Thompson's character supposed to be mentally retarded, or is her acting just that bad?
The acting in this film as a whole leaves much to be desired, so if it's her bad acting that's really saying something.
