Thanks for the heads up!  I rented this in the 90's and loved it.

This is a very good movie.  John did so well -- so comfortable and natural in front of a lens -- that it was obvious his talent was suited for films too.   I wish a "making of" special feature had been made of this one.  It would be a kick to know how it all went down behind the scenes.  A lot of folks from John's circle are credited in the movie (check out IMDB). 

It was released in 1992, but it seems late 80s to me (from John's appearance and Larry Crane being in it).

Great stuff.
