Neither of us were alive for the the SNL skits or the premiere of the movie, so we did not really see the big deal in it. But there is a cult following for this movie, but we are not really sure why. First, the music was good and they had a lot of famous guest stars that sang with them, which was fun! Then the movie became more and more ridiculous, which is probably the point of the movie, but it was no necessary. For example, the car chases were so long and boring that it made me uninterested in the movie. Grisham says that the movie did not date well, watching it 35+ years later. The humor is not very funny anymore, so now they just seem like two bums who have the potential to be cool.
Grisham – 3/10
Sam – 5/10
