I enjoy reading a writer who's passionate about what he likes and can explain why he likes it, so I enjoyed this book. Some of the movies were critical or festival favorites that bombed at the box office. Some didn't get much attention from anyone. Most were made within the last 20 years, but some are much older.
You probably won't always agree with Maltin's opinions about these movies. I know I didn't. That doesn't take away any of the fun of reading the book, however, and it's even more fun when you run across a movie that you liked a lot and that Maltin does, too.
Bonus: Includes Bubba Ho-Tep.
