This movie is too good and was a big hit when it came out.
It wasn't a hit AT ALL, which really surprised me, because I always thought it had been a blockbuster too. I remember seeing both this and "Labyrinth" (another film that I thought had done better) in the same weekend at my local movie theater. When I was a kid, I thought that if something was on TV all the time, it must have made a lot of money. Using that logic, "Red Dawn" would have been the highest-grossing film of all time, with "Police Academy 2" in a distant second.
