What a bunch of hamfisted sentimental horseshit...
All I ever see on social networking sites is "oh, this film gets me every time", "one of the best of the 80's" etc, etc, so when I saw it was on TV the other night I thought why not, and hit record...so I'd never seen it before...well not until today that is, and I'm truly sorry but I thought it was utterly atrocious.
It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, Costner is like watching a pile of logs shuffling around the screen, the script is diabolical, and it doesn't even have the decency to be in the least bit interesting, not even accidentally. Proof if you ever needed it that nostalgia is one hell of a dangerous thing when it can screw with your common sense.
One of the most intellectually insulting movies I've seen in a long time. Complete and utter garbage.
