Gonna Be Your Man In Motion

Tough call, I know, but who looks like the bigger dumbass in this video: John Parr or Rob Lowe?

You gotta love that John Parr's got that squirrelly Kevin Cronin thing happening on his noggin. I especially, though, love the end of that video where Parr comes around and visits with individual cast members like some hilariously untalented Pied Piper.

I distinctly remember seeing this movie with Deb Kelley at the Country Fair Cinemas in Champaign and laughing really hard at it. Both of us were, because it's such an awful movie. And somebody shushed us a couple of times. We weren't talking or anything, just laughing naturally at it, but I guess somebody liked it.

Can you believe ST. ELMO'S FIRE is on DVD, and SITTING TARGET isn't? I'd like to meet just one person who has this in his or her DVD collection.

We were the target audience for ST. ELMO'S FIRE, and I remember we thought it was embarrassing even in 1986!

I will admit that John Parr's other hit, 1984's "Naughty Naughty", is still a guilty pleasure.

You know, in some ways you're a lot like me... you're a prisoner, and you're tryin' to break free.
