On Saturday Night April 1st, several of us are planning on watching "April Fool's Day". This is my advance warning to give everyone an opportunity to seek out this brilliant film. I only watch this movie twice a year, on April Fool's Day and sometime near Halloween.

This movie is an awesome late night movie treat if you've never seen it. Movie watching is subjective, so I won't offer a Money Back Guarantee ...I'll let Isis do that instead. [Razz]

April Fool's Day has one of my favorite cast with Deborah Foreman, Amy Steel, Ken Olandt, Deborah Goodrich, and Clayton Rohner.

See you at the movies...and that's no April Fool.

That day is my Open House for the Grand Opening of my Bed N Breakfast. I thought it was the perfect day for it. My friends will all be here that day to help with the open house, and my one girlfriend is spending the night, and we will watch it, I have made her watch it before, but she liked it.

It is in my top 3 all time favorite movies. I love it so much.

I made an entire quilt watching it when I first bought it on VHS, which was about 4 1/2 years ago. I loved it the first time I saw it, and I watched it over and over after that.

I love the cast! Deborah Foreman is awesome in it. But, I have always loved Amy Steel from Friday the 13th part 2, and Ken Olandt is gorgeous, and Clayton Rohner is hysterical, and Deborah Goodrich is pretty cool too. I love everyone in it.

I love the idea of spending a weekend on an island with your friends in a big old house, hanging out and having fun.

It totally puts me in the mood for spring.

I am so glad tomorrow is the 1st of March, we only have 1 month to go- 3 weeks to actual spring. I am counting the days!

I love the cover art for the movie...check out that french braiding!!

This is a reminder to find your copy of "April Fool's Day" to watch this Saturday night April 1st.

My plan is start watching it about 10pm or so, the later the better ya know. So if you go out Saturday night try to remember to watch it when you get home.

Guys, I bought it this morning after reading this post for a massive £4.50 [Eek!] [Big Grin] (I love the price of 80's movies)

So i'll be watching it on Saturday night. I haven't seen it before so it's gonna be cool [Big Grin]

STU-That is so awesome. I loved it the first time I saw it, I just think the cast is the best, I love all those actors in it. I liked it so much the first time, I turned around and watched it again. I never ever do that in one day...not watch the same movie.

AngelEyeZ- there is a cool review on the Rewind main page about it, they summerized it alot better than I ever could, without giving out too much of the movie, check it out.


I am so excited that so many people will be watching it. I love that!! I think it is awesome to watch a movie on the day the movie is based on, like watching Friday the 13th on friday the 13th...that makes it so much cooler. Or Halloween...on Halloween.

I looked for this in my collection and I don't have it [Eek!] . I guess I will have to go to best buy tonight or over to a warehouse music to see if they have it used.

Yeah, really that would suck if they "forgot" to put the movie in there.

I got my copy sitting right next to the tv, every time I have a specific movie I wanna watch...it takes me an hour to locate it, this time I made sure I was prepared.

With a haunting name like imawalkingcorpse, you should be able to scare up a copy by tonight! [Eek!]

I don't think I read that review the whole way through, I like the beginning part...until he added in some things I would have bleeped out, geez...I thought all the reviews were kid friendly?? I wouldn't have wanted my kid to have read a portion of that review.

I wanna know who the people are writing the reviews-I know they are regular 80's fans but they never come on the message boards hardly ever. It is a strange set up.

Well "April Fool's Day" is not a kid friendly movie, so the review just makes that extremely clear. [Razz]

Forget the review, my suggestion is... if you're old enough to watch R-rated movies, go out and get April Fool's Day for tonight!

I actually thought when I took the wrapping off, that it would be funny if there was no disk in there [Big Grin]

But it is and i'm all set for tonight [Big Grin]

It's way cool that we are all gonna watch the same movie tonight.

I watched it this afternoon! It's kind of gloomy here so it was perfect. I have to say I really enjoy this one, eventhough it's not that scary. Excellent cast!

I have to tell you all my entire April Fool's Day story...I thought I'd wait until I was more awake, but I can't believe Stu said about what if he opened the case and it not be in there.

Earlier before people started coming here for my Open House, I said to my friend..that we were watching it later, and for some unknown reason I opened the case cause we were just sitting around...I was thinking of course the movie was there...but it wasn't...so I thought CRIPES! Where could it be? I remembered when my Aunt was here in February we were going to watch it, but we didn't, cause she remembered I had made her watch it already. So, I figured I must have laid it somewhere...so I start looking all through all my DVDs, like inbetween all the cases, to see if the disc was laying in there. I couldn't find it, I started to panic... thinking...I told everyone else to watch it, and I can't find it...so inbetween when people would come here...I would go look some more for it...
I thought if all else fails I have a vhs copy...so I decided maybe it would be easier to find it...so I went looking even clear up to my attic, where I knew I had put it, cause of it being an extra copy, but I thought no way do I want to even attempt trying to locate it up there...so then I went back again and looked through the entertainment center for it...and I find The Cinncinnati Kid...the Steve McQueen movie I bought over a year and 1/2 ago(still in the plastic)...that I have been looking for all that time....cause I could never remember all this time where it was, and there it was in a drawer...so about that time...I am thinking it felt like some GOOF was playing some April Fool's joke on me.

So, I looked through every single DVD...and laying on top of a Breakdance DVD that some goof gave me for Xmas last year..I came across a DVD out of the case...and I thought whoa this is it...it has to be, it was the only loose DVD I came across...but it turned out to be a disc of Dallas...that Cindymancini had sent me back seperate from the others, and I mixed it in with my stuff...so I was thinking...man this feels like some crazy Rewind April Fool's joke....

So, by this time I am in to looking for that DVD for an hour, and I pick up the case for Fire with Fire...completely out of the blue, and I opened it, and inside it is the disc for April Fool's Day. It is the only case I opened to looking inside...I have no idea why. I couldn't believe it...but there it was, and the whole thing felt like this giant April Fool's joke, I was telling it to my friend as I was looking for it, and she couldn't believe it either. Talk about weird!! It is still freaking me out.

We just got done watching it.

I still think it's way cool that we all watched the same movie at the same time.

April Fool's Day still rocks in my opinion! I love how the movie opens with the the little home video camera recording the begins of a college spring break. The more you watch it you realize that Deborah Foreman did such an outstanding job as Muffy/Buffy in this movie. Her role wasn't glamorous and it was definitely a bit spooky, but she nailed what the director was looking for in it. Amy Steel and Ken Olandt seemed to have great chemistry together. Deborah Goodrich as Naughty Nikki was awesomely teamed up again with Clayton Rohner as Chaz. Even Griffin O'Neal, who only one year later had to deal with accidently killing a friend, was excellent in his role as Skip. Spooky foreshadowing indeed.
