      brian v A fun watch. I came to watch this after I listened to the 'How Did This Get Made' podcast on this, haha. Just so funny to think Lobo may have been an influence on the Dog the Bounty Hunter we have today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Very underrated romantic comedy. and I am not a big fan of romantic comedies. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/07/22 Full Review Audience Member This one disturbed me as a kid, and when I put it on as an adult it disturbed my family. My husband was lucky enough to miss this when it first came out, so I introduced him to this nightmare. He got far enough to where he understood the plot and he "Wow. No." and was incredulous this had a good turn on Cinemax back in the day. You might want to watch this because you're cocky and think nothing will mess you up, let alone a Steve Guttenberg vehicle! Beware, this one sneaks up on you, and suddenly you're poisoned with this vision forever. Just look at my writing! Happy to share, though... :) Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Long longs as Gertz squirts gas for Gus. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member really likable, original little gem of a film Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Classic funny film. Love it Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
