      Chas S This is a great funny comedy/drama movie that is packed with stars and also showcases Denzel Washington's film debut. I would recommend it to anyone. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/18/24 Full Review Vieshia K I have no words. 1981. '81... this was still being done in movies. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/03/24 Full Review Victoria C I loved this movie. It made me laugh. Denzel was so handsome and young. Give it a shot you will like it too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/07/23 Full Review William A This movie is horrible Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 06/07/23 Full Review Alex S I reviewed this movie for the fellas. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/17/23 Full Review Tic Toc M Just to let people know: this movie was a huge bomb, totally panned, it was in poor taste then, just as now. This was in no way a hit movie. In fact, if memory serves, it was one of the biggest bombs of that year, though don't quote me. I distinctly remember it getting one (out of four) stars in the newspaper (I think it was Joseph Gelmis reviewing). I doubt many people who were around there even remember this movie. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
