Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

A solid story provides a good foundation for Murphy’s comedy and charm.

May have been the first film to truly define the style of the 80’s, and definitely the first film to expose the previously and strangely ignored subculture of Beverly Hills. In terms of the edginess, profanity, loose, casual performances, and R-rating, this might be one of the first “modern” adult movies.
