This feels like an extended television episode, like if John Hughes started making a series. Not much depth to the script outside some very basic character dynamics. The drama comes out of nowhere. Two guys just come in to rob the Target store, but they have no set up or real connection to the characters. Home Alone handled this much better. There are a number of (rather pointless) montage scenes, and set to hit songs of the time, which can be enjoyable, but add nothing to the story. I'd say only give this a watch for Jennifer Connolly (mostly for her looks), and if you want to get nostalgic over the time period. It definitely is a time capsule type film.

3. The triumphant exit of the limo

At under 90 minute it felt short. And more to the point empty. Beyond those three scenes there's nothing else to really see. I'm glad I watched it but it More

A deadbeat boy (Frank Whaley) gets stuck in a large store overnight with a beautiful rich girl (Jennifer Connelly).

Although written by John Hughes, it’s an almighty mess of a film without enough material to last even 80 minutes. Things go from slapstick comedy to romance to crime caper so quic More
