THE BEST OF TIMES (Theatrical Release USA 1986)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

The Best of Times
wants to be a comedy, but it isn’t. Weak script, weak portrayal, and an odd combination of Robin Williams with Kurt Russell creates a fallout film that begs an answer to the questions, ‘What’s the purpose of this movie, why is it important, and what is its meaning?’
