I pity the fool that hasn't seen this movie. I got it from netflix months ago and just finally got around to watching it. I want to kick myself for waiting for so long! This is a hidden gem from the 1980s, back before DC was super-gentrified, and even before bitches were setting up mayors. It captures the strange inhabitants of DC pretty well and for some reason Bill Maher is in it? A young [and totally sexy] Adam Baldwin stars as well, as does Gary Busey. I was pleasantly surprised that this stood the test of time. It's really funny and weird and just so...eighties. It's directed by Joel Schumacher, who went on to shoot the equally awesome St. Elmo's Fire in DC two years later.
