Wisdom (1986)

 Wisdom” [voice over] Here in America, we can fabricate anything.”

Number of Times Seen – Between 5-10 times  (cable in the 80’s, video and 3 Jul 2014)

Brief Synopsis – When he can’t find a job because he has a juvenile criminal record, a young man and his girlfriend become crusaders and are seen as a modern day Robin Hood when they start robbing banks to help the poor.

My Take on it – As a kid, I inexplicably loved this movie after seeing it on cable. It was also one of the first movies I taped when we got a vcr in 1987 and watched it over and over.

Having re-watched this today, I have no clue as to what is was that drew me to this film back in my youth.

It was horrendously silly and pointless. The plot makes no sense at all and I just wanted to laugh out loud at the stupid dialogue.

At least by making this movie, Emilio Estevez broke a record that stands to this day; he became the youngest person to write, direct and star in a movie.

Stay away even if Demi Moore is in it!!

Bottom Line – Not even close to being as good as I recalled. Movie isn’t interesting at all and the premise makes little to no sense.

Rating – Razzie Worthy

  2. Ah, I loved this as a teenager. The Oingo Boingo song at the end, I believe it was called Home Again, I loved it. I must revisit it, although it’s nearly impossible to track down in the UK now.
