Reviews
Mine: Just terrible. The leads are kind of fun, but terribly written, badly directed. Connelly is very good looking, but that is the only thing to recommend this one.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Otherwise unemployable teen gets the night watchman job at an all-purpose department store; his first night is an idyllic round-the-clocker with a girl who's hiding out inside, and who just happens to be the town's no. 1 rich dish. Typical ode to arrested development from writer-producer John Hughes, a 10m. idea stretched into a feature. Tolerable only for John Candy's unbilled cameo, and as a showcase for gorgeous Connelly. Panavision.
