I actually always thought this was a 90s movie? crazy....and when I was 12 back then it bored me.

I just watched it and loved it!

I've actually admired everything Devito has done as a director.

Turner and Douglas are awesome!....I can see why as a child i'd pass it up.....because you'd really have to be an adult to understand the animosity? right?

I loved how much I actually hate Turner and wanted to side with Douglas then started hating him a bit lol this movie was done very well in my opinion.

I saw this at the drive in when I was 8, and loved it straight off the bat. I guess I was accustomed to that kind of animosity growing up (but obviously not quite as intense as in the movie though).

I love the bit where she is telling a story and...he cuts it short. It's great.

Another scene I love is when he does that thing (you know) to the fish.

Thumbs up for me.

I like this one too. And like you, Muff, I didn't really "get it" when it came out (I think were the same age). I thought it was gonna be like the two previous Douglas/Turner flicks, but was sorely dissapointed.

I appreciate it now, and yes, DeVito has some good directorial skills. Love Hoffa too.

Jay Lee and Ronnie I think it's funny that we were all the same age thinking this movie was booooooooooring.

I also loved the Turner/Douglas combo before.

That's how I watched it Ronnie...it was on Encore the other day and i'm like hmmmm wonder if it's ondemand this month and it is...for free.........check it out.

I didn't like it when I was younger either. Now that I'm an adult I can appreciate it LOL.

I actually kinda liked it when I was younger....haven't seen it in many years though. Need to watch it again as an adult to see if my opinions are the same.
