This movie makes no sense...At
least the opening credit sequence doesn't. Corey Feldman and
Corey Haim are friends at high school. They walked across an
old man's yard, but get sprayed. Suddenly, a girl dances. This
movie's logic increases as the old guy and his wife do exercises,
a man wipes a chalkboard, and Corey Feldman gets hit by a bike.
Corey Haim steals some cookies. Corey Feldman talks to the old
guy in a yard full of toilet paper. They switch size, like in
"like father like son", only not convincing .[e.n.
- as if "like father like son" was convincing?!"]
The only thing that Feldman does that the old guy did was quote
stuff. The old guy is stuck in the dream world. The movie has
a lot echoes. The old guy interrupts Corey Feldman's loving movies.
Corey Feldman dances. Corey Feldman gets beat up. This movie
is confusing. Rumor has it this movie was used for torture in
Chinese prisons in the 1980's. Awful.
1 out of 5
We are, maybe 5 minutes into
the movie and, well, so far this movie is excellent. What remains
to be seen is if this movie can keep at the level. The lighting
eats it. Feldman and Haim make a dynamic comic duo. The movie
makes a small amount of sense. You can consider me confused.
Lot's of 80's cheese music, but I'm not sure if that's a good
or bad thing. Plot is believable as hot chick wants to dump smart,
successful, attractive man for the ultimate cool of Corey Feldman.
Mat sucks. Jason Robards also sucks. He is ruining Corey Feldman's
character. However, he redeems himself by being so old, and by
inhibiting Corey Feldman's body.
Conclusion: In the tradition
of Vice-Versa and Like father, like son; but exceeds all of these
on the basis of Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. P.S. mat sucks
and is an idiot.

I've got two words for the beginning
of this movie: fucked up. This is a prime example of an excellent
80's movie, except for the lighting, which sucks. I also don't
like some of the music. I like the plot. I'm now convinced. Corey
Feldman is the pinnacle of coolness. Mat was bad-mouthing Corey
Feldman, so he is going to get smacking. The song, Billie Jean,
redeems the soundtrack. Corey's Parents are dicks. I really hope
Mat falls asleep later. This has a good ending. The old man learns
to embrace his inner Feldman.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5 on the
(It loses a half point for the lighting)
Mat Suckitude scale: 6.5 out
