"You know the old saying, if at first you don't succeed, try, try again."
"Davidge, you learn this from great Drac teacher, Shismar?"
"No, from Mickey Mouse."
"Mickey Mousssssse. Mickey Mouse."
"Is this great Earthman teacher?"
"Yeah. Sort of."
My brother and I watched Enemy Mine several times a month back when it was making the rounds on cable in the mid '80s. I hadn't seen it since then so it was interesting to see how much of it I remembered. It's a simple story, seemingly told for kids, despite its PG-13 rating, to explain that just because you've been told that a group, country, race, what have you is your enemy, it doesn't mean that that's really true. Some of it's a bit laughable now, but visually it's still pretty impressive. The Drac makeups are truly fantastic looking. A nice stroll down memory lane... Thanks, Cinemonster.
