"This soundtrack is 5 stars. I know this because I listened to my friend's. I never received mine through Amazon and I never received my soundtrack and when I asked him about it. He replied "F*ck you, a*shole!" but without the asteriks. He signed it:
Mark Doddington
Director of E-Commerce
Record Head"

If you don't want to receive your CD, you don't want help finding out where it is, and you want to be verbally abused then buy from the person above.

"Probably some of Randy Newman's best work, goes along with the movie, which creates an emotion, which is exactly what I feel a movie and it's score is supposed to do."
A little piece of poetry in a rough world

"Now, i know this title sounds a bit girlie, but that's really how i feel when i listen to this music.

I remember watching the film when i was about 15: it was one of my first "serious" movies (as opposed to Terminator 2 for instance). I really liked it, probably watched the rented tape twice before handing it over...

I also remember that:
- The movie hasn't been a hit (at least not in France where i live), despite the great work of both Robin Williams and Robert de Niro.
- I immediately bought the score, as i was already a big fan of original soundtracks at that age.

Last but not least, i want to say that of all the work of Randy Newman, this is probably the most sensitive piece and personally, surely the only one i'll ever like (not a big fan of him, otherwise). And "Dexter's Tune" (track 12) is indubitably one of the most beautiful piano tunes i've ever heard: it has that light jazzy feeling but also a very dark side in some of the chords...

Anyway, go buy that thing, you'll like it!"
