    Our punk hero wears a Tangerine Dream shirt and an American flag pin on his lapel. And yet, I remain utterly charmed. Second only to Fast Times for my favorite 80s teen cheese.

    Better than I expected but still bogged down with tired jokes for adults and smirky IP references. Make children’s movies for children again!


    Tellingly, my six year old son easily rattled off his favorite superpets but when asked who is favorite superhero was, “none” was his response.

    When I was in college, I briefly worked at the on campus video store. I sniffed at the “pedestrian” taste of my fellow students and bemoaned our tired selections. This and Maria Full of Grace were two of the “prestige” movies we stocked. As a result, on my way out, I swiped the DVD. I still have it. Roughly 15 years later, I finally streamed it on HBO. Apparently my superior taste didn’t extend to actually watching the movies. 

    Joke…
