"The one thing I never could stomach about living in Santa Carla ... all the damn vampires."
Hunter and I had fun watching THE LOST BOYS, Joel Schumacher's vampire comedy/thriller after Janice Fischer and James Jeremias's script. I had the odd thought after watching it that it's made for three audiences. There's a romance between Michael (Jason Patric) and Star (Jami Gertz). There's a low comedy/thriller involving Sam (Corey Haim) and the Fearless Frog Brothers (Corey Feldman and Jamison Newlander). And there's some adult isn't-it-awkward-dating-when-you-have-kids with Dianne Wiest and Edward Hermann.
It's basically a co-viewing movie: something for everybody. Everybody except Lisa, really, who napped on the couch not eight feet from the TV without actually watching it.
Jeffrey Boam got a co-write on this; he was Donner's guy. I wonder what changes he made? Anyone know?
