About this movie

The town con and the town beauty team up to outwit a half-wit pair of would-be burglars in this hilarious comedy from John Hughes. Frank Whaley stars as Jim Dodge, a smooth-talking small-town guy with a knack for putting up a front -but no talent for holding down a job. But Jim's life suddenly takes a turn for the fantastic when he finds himself locked inside the local department store one night with Josie McClellan (Jennifer Connelly), the daughter of the town's wealthiest citizen. And when this unlikely pair is treated to a surprise visit from two bargain-hunting burglars (Dermot Mulroney and Kieran Mulroney), the laughs keep escalating in this delightfully entertaining look at small-town America.

A decent idea sadly not excecuted entirely great. The main characters dont have the best chemistry, and their relationship seems kinda superficial. Despite this the film is mildly entertaining. It is probably is not needed to say that Jenifer Conelly is insanely beautiful, and that is without a draw for this film. 3 Stars

Desde que vi un video en YouTube, sentí ganas de verla, busqué en todas partes y la encontré acá. Es muy Bonita Jennifer Connelly. Pero siento mucho que no tenga audio o subtítulos.
