A little bit better than the live-action Bay films, for a very small fraction of the budget... and it has Orson Welles.

Written by John Hughes and loved by many women I expected this to be better; but it was a disappointment. I can't say it's bad, as there are enough nice moments and there is still the iconic John Hughes dialogue and characters. It's a good movie to see if you want to see an exaggerated example of the 80s in a film made in the 80s.

Scorsese says this is the best films of the decade. I certainly disagree but he adds a lot of validity.

Because these characters and actors have nothing in common there is not much to enjoy here. But it's very difficult not to like Hanks in anything, even if it possibly his weakest film.

Salvador (1986)
This Oliver Stone film flew under the radar, possibly because 'Platoon' was enough for people to stomach or because it's even more anti-U.S. government.

This has to be James Woods' best performance of his career and James Belushi is solid as well.
