Synopsis


About Last Night...
David Mamet's play Sexual Perversity in Chicago was adapted for the big screen by fellow Chicago citizen Tim Kazurinsky and became About Last Night... The film stars Rob Lowe as Danny and Demi Moore as Debbie. The pair meet and engage in a torrid sexual relationship, but then slowly negotiate if there is anything more between them. Lowe seeks advice from his loudmouthed friend Bernie (Chicago native James Belushi), whose offers little more than outrageous tales of his randy exploits. Debbie confides in her best friend Joan (Elizabeth Perkins), a bitter, single kindergarten teacher who has lost any hope of finding the right person on the dating scene. Although Danny and Debbie talk, they have trouble communicating. The film ends on a coda that suggests the pair are still unsure as to where their relationship may be headed. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

St. Elmo's Fire
Post-collegiate angst, '80s style, is the subject of this coming-of-age ensemble piece, which traces the fortunes of a group of Georgetown grads as they enter the real world and grapple with work, infidelity, and adulthood. The most outwardly upscale member of the gang, Jules (Demi Moore), hides a plethora of emotional baggage behind a chic wardrobe, an expensive apartment, a fashionable drug habit, and lots of meaningless casual sex. Her friend Wendy (Mare Winningham) has the opposite problem; a trust-fund baby with body-image issues and little sexual experience, she's hung up on Billy (Rob Lowe), a no-good, sax-playing drunkard who can't face up to his responsibilities in the job market or at home with his wife and young child. Such open infidelity is anathema to Alex (Judd Nelson), who must maintain a sense of propriety even while engaging in compulsive womanizing; after all, the Democrat-turned-Republican's nascent political career requires the sort of picture-perfect relationship he shares with girlfriend Leslie (Ally Sheedy). That doesn't sit too well with tortured writer Kevin (Andrew McCarthy), who toils away at a newspaper job and pines away for the unattainable Leslie. Unrequited love also dogs Kirby (Emilio Estevez), a law-school student whose greatest wish is to romance classy doctor Dale Biberman (Andie MacDowell), who is, alas, way out of his league. Co-written by director Joel Schumacher and his studio intern, Carl Kurlander, St. Elmo's Fire spawned the number one pop hit "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)," which was credited to John Parr but co-written by music producer David Foster. ~ Brian J. Dillard, Rovi

    The price was right for the two flicks on blu-ray (Best Buy had 'em on sale for $9.99). Was it worth it? If you already own the flicks, the blu-ray versions are not much (if at all) better than their dvd counterparts. Picture quality is so-so. The movies themselves were enjoyable to watch, but that's pretty much it.

    Of interest to film buffs, but dated material

    There are two movies in this Blu-ray package - they are both similar, so they can be reviewed together. They are both about Yuppies learning to cope with life in the 1980's. I feel these movies will be of more interest to film buffs who want to see early acting from the "brat pack": Demi Moore, Rob Lowe, etc.

    Movies like these that seemed great at the time usually lose something with the passage of time. These two are an enjoyable trip down memory lane, great price, nice to be able to add them to a blu ray collection instead of having to dig out a VCR to watch the VHS tape.

    Two solid 80's movies all in one package. First About Last Night which just got remade. St. Elmo's Fire is the ultimate brat pack movie. Got lots of familiar 80's young actors in it, good music soundtrack and good times. Add this to your 80's movie collection.

    I found this BD double pack on sale last week at BB for less than 5 dollars per movie. Both are classics from the 80s. I don't think you can go wrong if your a sucker for nostalgia. Just finished watching Ferris Bueller.

    These films are superior examples of 1980' s dramas featuring many of the most popular young actors of the time.
