The Sure Thing

       This was a typical 80's comedy.  It contained 80's storyline, an 80's cast, some 80's music and the 80's style of acting. None of these things are compliments.  This movie was contrived from the start. It was apparent that John Cusack will Say Anything to get a girl to sleep with him. 

This movie followed in the footsteps of this particular decade of R rated sex comedies, Such as Porky's, Revenge of the Nerds, and Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Those movies at least had some good full frontal nudity. That was the only drawing points of these pathetic testosterone driven comedies with a audience filled with under laid boys just waiting for there first (and probably only) chance to look at female naked body. 

This movie was rated Pg-13 witch means no nudity. That's fine if it actually has a plot. Those are the kinds of movies I prefer in fact. The only thing is this one didn't have a decent story line, at least not an original one. In fact it had neither. 

The main male lead in this movie must travel across the entire country from an undisclosed (I wonder why) Ivy League college to California just to get laid. The name of the California campus is undisclosed as well. There is a reason for this no university in the county wanted there name associated with this two dimensional shell of a movie. 

This movie is so bad it makes playing tag with a ravenous junkyard dog seem more appealing. Much like playing tag with the hound dog from Hell this movie will surly bite you in the ass. Thank God the sun came up and the rain cleared away as I watched this movie, because now I can get out of my apartment and run away from the computer I watched this monstrosity of a movie on. 

               The only disadvantage is I know "I'll be back" maybe I can go join Arnold in California. (another bad actor whose career flourished in the 80's)  hitchhiking naked cross country to California would have been a better use of my time than watching this appalling film.  Wait hold on a minute that was the entire premise to this movie. Except unfortunately for me they kept their clothes on.

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
