Janne the Director’s Favorite Rare Movies Top 100 List #28: Miracle Mile (1988)

April 23, 2011

Janne the Director with a Space Mahoney t-shirt from the movie No Law 400028. Miracle Mile (1988)

It starts out with Anthony Goose Edwards hooking up with Mare Winningham (in a bad Annette Benning-haircut).

Because of the romantic plot twists and funny dialog; I thought I was watching a romantic comedy. You know the 80’s kind of comedy that is funny but you don’t laugh out loud because they hadn’t figured out irony yet and relied on this thing called… charm?

Anyways; he misses a date and, you know; the typical rom com scenario occurs: BAM! RUSSIANS WILL BLOW UP LOS ANGELES WITHIN THE NEXT TWO HOURS!

What the..?

Originally this was written as a part for Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983) so it has that Rod Serling vibe to it but on a bigger scale.

So… if you are ever in the mood for an 80’s romantic comedy about the end of the world..? This would be it.

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 29. Night of the Creeps (1986)
