Oh my god, I just realised I thought Dreyfuss was Gene Hackman when I first watched this back in the day. WHAT WAS I -- well, I guess to prepubescent/teenage me, all older white men looked the same.
Hackman has never had this effect on me okay. Now I'm wondering whether this is in fact peak Dreyfuss hawtness. Not just the irreverence of his character and the sexual charisma that is not predatory, but god that actual gorgeous face and that wicked beautiful smile and that laugh.
I enjoyed this movie very much.
Despite the total wrongness of Aidan Quinn beautiful Aidan Quinn as very horrible bad man. I did not like that at all. Do NOT want. I'm prolly gunna have to rewatch Practical Magic to balance this badhorrible role in my head.
"That was not a boating accident" made me laugh so hard, and then even more when I read how that came about.
