Rather distasteful and utterly unfunny Whoopi Goldberg drugs ‘n’ vice “comedy”, with little of interest on screen unless the sight of such luminaries as Cheech ‘The Golden Palace’ Marin and Fred ‘Joe ‘Mama’ Besser, you know, the fat, absconding drummer off of This is Spinal Tap’ Asparagus floats your cameo boat. Still, the soundtrack’s late-’80s heaven, with Harold Faltermeyer, Debbie Gibson, Miki ‘Love Under New Management’ Howard, the original ‘Didn’t I (Blow Your Mind This Time)’ by The System, and – yes! – ‘Casanova’ by Levert.
Creamguide's Pick of the Day
Second part of this, where our hero moves slightly more towards the mainstream and starts penning film soundtracks, including the likes of Flashdance and Top Gun, plus of course The Never Ending Story which means we get to enjoy Limahl nestling alongside the rest of the heavyweight contributors, plus another film where his soundtrack is probably about a hundred times more famous now than the actual film. It’s the title of this programme, for a start.
