So last night, H and I were channel surfing and stopped on Eddie and the Cruisers. How could we not? I remember, as a kid, being completely infatuated with Eddie and also thinking Joanne was supercool.
But last night, it felt like we were reading a script.
INT. EMPTY BAR - Lone barkeep sweeps floor as Eddie and The Cruisers enter through front door, one by one. First Eddie, then Joanne, Sal, etc. Barkeep stops sweeping and peers at the strangers. A silence holds the room as Eddie and the Cruisers stare down the barkeep.
Can I help you?
Eddie nods at Sal.
Yeah. We're Eddie and the Cruisers.
The bandmembers smirk and chuckle knowingly.
That movie may have been intoxicating at 13, but at 38, it was BAD.
What movie do remember enjoying in your youth that turned out to be not so great as an adult?
