Some nice performances, and I know some of you are thinking that I'm recommending this only because of Diane Lane's great work as a stripper with a heart that's hardly golden. I'm not, but that's one excellent reason to watch. There's also a great soundtrack, and this is another movie that I left only to go directly to a store to buy a cassette of the music.
The Big Town didn't do particularly well during its run in theaters, as far as I know, and it pretty much disappeared afterward, so it's another one that nobody likes buy me. So be warned before you rush out to find a DVD. If there even is one.
