Vintage Trailer of the Week 29

In with a good shout for the title of most 1980s of all sub-genres, the "Walk on the wild side" film usually told the story of an ordinary guy getting over his head in a part of his city he never knew existed and encountering characters of decidedly pulp dimensions. "After Hours" and "Something wild" are good examples, but this deliriously off-kilter mix of comedy, thriller and love story is somehow more representative in its gaudiness and energy. What other film could possibly boast David Bowie as a bad guy, some jarringly harsh violence, Michelle Pfieffer at her most beautiful, and Jeff Goldblum owning the film as the guy in over his head? No other film, is the answer.
