Devolution here,

Blake, it used to be on all the time, and it's worth the pick up, definitely an underrated Fox movie.

I LOVE this movie. Saw it at the theater like 5 times. Not sure how many times I have seen it since. Be it on VHS, DVD, or cable. I really loved Margaret Whitton (Auntie Vera!) She was awesome.

It's a light movie, but it's cool [Cool] .Honestly speaking, when I watched this film the 1st thing that comes to my mind is the word 'unrealistic', 'just in the movies'. Moral lesson in the story - in life it's not on WHAT you know that counts the most, it's always WHO you know. [Big Grin]

Watching this movie at the moment..........after watching Bright Lights Big blah blah. I need this!!

Have always loved MJFox in this one....the soundtrack is pretty great...for cheesy "made for the movie" songs to overplayed but still lovely classics......bow bow chica chica...um bow bow...........I'll give my rundown when i've finished it [Big Grin]

I remember back when I first saw this movie when it first came out...i was a bit too young to understand alot of the adult humor in it..but now that i'm grown up and I get all the jokes now...it's become one of my favorite MJ Fox films...i say this movie is worth double that asking price...so I say go for it.

Such an outstanding comedy! MJF has some of the best reactive expressions of the 80's.

OhhhYeeaaahhhh

25 hours a day!!! haha got me singing there.

It's one of those even though I hadn't watched it in a few years it was like watching it all over again....i'd kind of forgotten what happens in the main story......MJ was so great!

Ronnie, funny! I never noticed his hair changing? Helen Slater's hair bugged me haha but I guess it was supposed to be corporate 80's lady........in the scenes where she's suppose to be relaxed her hair looked 80's awesome! haha

Muffy, Helen Slater's hair reminded me of that line by Melanie Griffith in Working Girl: "I have a head for business and a bod for sin"

There was definately the 'tiger inside the business suit' that MJ managed to kick-start....

Helen Slater's hair was magnificent! She looked great in this movie! *She* should be the iconic woman of the 80's - not this Kelly LeBrook person!
