VISION QUEST REVIEWED
“Vision Quest” is to wrestlers, what “Pretty in Pink” is to disgusting gingers. If you’ve never seen this movie, well you’ve seen the Crazy for You video taken from the film. If you’re too young for that, then you remember seeing it parodied on “Family Guy”. For those not old enough to watch “Family Guy”, well this isn’t the site for you. So, what does one make of a 31 year old movie that dared to have Jake Ryan pretend to be a Native America? Well, it’s kinda awesome.
Linda Farentino plays a drifter, Matthew Modine plays the oldest 17 year old in America and Jake Ryan gets caught in an Elizabeth Warren sized lie. Outside of Madonna, the soundtrack is a hot mess that is ripe for parody. But, why did WB hire the director of The Onion Field to make a teen sports movie? Well, that’s because how America did things in the 1980s. Michael Keaton got to bounce from “Clean & Sober” to Batman. The Onion Field guy got to direct an extended Madonna music video. Life was crazy and Ronald Reagan made America Great Again…for Corporations.
