Great 80's comedy
13 February 2017 | by boomchicaboomboomSee all my reviews

I watched this movie as a kid (when I was about 10 or 11 yrs old) and it was always my favorite movie because of Emily Lloyd's Madonnaesque style and her bad girl attitude in this film . At the time, I had no idea who Peter Falk or Emily Lloyd were, but have since learned they are both great actors. I saw "Wish You Were Here" with Emily LLoyd years later after seeing "Cookie". I had a huge crush on Adrian Pasdar after this movie also( didn't know who he was, or how great of an actor he was until years later either). The Kylie Minogue song "Lucky in Love" that plays at the end of the movie, has stuck in my head for years and I still love it to this day.

FYI Trivia -I just read on Wikipedia that supposedly Emily LLoyd and Peter Falk did not get along while filming this movie and he reportedly slapped her because he got frustrated with her. I also had no idea Emily LLoyd was English. Every movie I ever saw her in, she always seemed to pull off a really good American accent.
