Three Reasons I Loved That Movie When It Came Out When I was 15 - And Why It Distorted All My Post-College Expectations:
Rob Lowe. I was convinced a "Billy" was really out there, someday...
Jules'/Demi Moore's apartment. I was convinced I would easily find a big light-filled place right out of college. Though I did love my first apartment with its exposed brick wall.
Time to hang out. Yes, I had lots of fun in my twenties, but I worked a LOT and didn't have tons of time to be visiting with friends at their apartments.
RIP Joel Schumacher, too.
