bad/awesome flixxx review: Somewhere In Time (1980)
"I am an actress, Mr. Robinson, not a doormat. Do not attempt to wipe your boots on me." - Elise McKenna
"Reechard. Reeeeeeechaaaarrrrd!!!!!!!!" - Elise McKenna
"Come back to me." - Old woman
Wow. I promised Melissa I would review this a year ago, and then I finally watched it, and then I did like ten reviews and forgot to do this one and caught all manner of hell. I didn't NOT review it on purpose. It just slipped through the cracks. Personally I didn't even think it was THAT bad. I mean its rough. But if you could sit through THE TIME TRAVELER'S WIFE, then you could sit through this. It's basically the same story. Ok, we have Superman himself and a BLANGIN' Jane Seymour (and a cameo by ol William H. Macy) in SOMEWHERE IN TIME!!!
So in the beginning of this flick, Superman is a college student in 1972 and is hanging out with the cast after the first viewing of his first play which is a success. Suddenly a really old woman comes up to him, interupts him, hands him a pocket watch and says, "Come back to me". He'd never seen this chick before and she splits right away. Needless to say, he was creeped out, as any superhero would have been.
