I watched this for How Did This Get Made. I remember seeing this in theaters and not loving it as much as I wanted to...and that was basically the reaction I had today.

Kristy Swanson is great and gorgeous and charismatic and deserves to still be part of the pop culture landscape today. I know she still works, but you know what I mean. She needs to be forefront.

Billy Zane...you gotta love this guy. I will say as a kid I was shocked when Billy Zane shaved his head. "What about all that hair he had in Titanic and The Phantom?" I'd say. Oh to be so young and unwise again...he's obviously rocking a wig in this. It's weird how aware you become of the follicly challenged once you are near risk of becoming a member yourself. It's like when you buy a new car and all of a sudden you see all the other cars like yours on the road.

Anyway, purple in the jungle doesn't make too much sense. I don't think I'd fall for that microscope trick. James Remar was in this too so I can't outright hate it. But a mild disappointment.
