(7-Very Good Film)
Fun. Light. Period.
80’s romantic comedy about a bored housewife (Arquette) losing her memory and assuming the identity of a carefree drifter (Madonna). With the new identity comes trouble and a ruthless killer following her. There to help her is Dez (Quinn) who inevitably falls in love with her. Solid fare, with good performances top to bottom. The outcome may be predictable, but the story took a number of surprising turns along the way, with a fairly original premise to begin with.
