User Review

Special memory for me

Rating:


This movie has special meaning for me. I remember being 16 when I took
the "love of my life" (who was 15) to see it. I had not seen it
since…until tonight. For some reason, I had been thinking about this
movie lately and looked on EBay and got it yesterday. I watched it
tonight and cannot believe the memories it brought back. I was
surprised to remember a lot of the scenes and lines throughout. It also
made me terribly sad to remember that my "love" passed away in a car
accident 3 years after we saw it together. The title song gets me every
time. I cannot honestly say whether or not this is a "good" movie as
far as "good" movies go. But I can say without a doubt that after
watching this tonight for the first time in 25 years, this movie takes
my heart to a place it hasn't been to since 1984 and made me remember
an unforgettable night in 1981.

I guess that's what certain movies do, be it "good" or "bad".
