    Hard to Hold
    In Hard to Hold, pop singer Rick Springfield is cast as an immensely successful recording artist named James Roberts. As a result of a fender-bender accident, Roberts meets and falls in love with child psychologist Diana Lawson (Janet Eilber), who is not the least bit impressed with James' wealth or fame. He spends the rest of the picture following Diana all over San Francisco, much to the discomfort of his lovelorn writing partner Nicky Nides (Patti Hanson). ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Fun rock movie with a little drama and comedy.

      • Verified PurchaserVerified Purchase

      Hard to Hold is a fun 80's movie starring Rick Springfield as an intelligent, down-to-earth, wild but peaking rock star. He and his love interest(s) struggle with their inner demons.

      ...and I remembered how cool of an 80's movie it is! Especially enjoyed watching it after I was able to see Rick Springfield in concert a few weeks ago.
