    1. The Feelies as the High School Reunion Band 2. Cameos by John Waters and John Sayles. 3. The opening title song by David Byrne featuring Celia Cruz.

      Agree with first two, and as for the third, the whole soundtrack is great!

    1. Melanie Griffith is underrated, and I wish i had her wig 2. The soundtrack is awesome... full of unexpectedly cool songs from the 80s 3. Jonathan Demme went on to make The Silence of the Lambs! Need I say more?

    1- Ray Liotta's terrifying peformance. Scary and menacing one moment, funny the next. 2- Melanie Griffith's hair/wig 3-You never know what's going to happen next

    1) The leads -- Melanie Griffith, Jeff Daniels and Ray Liotta -- were never better. 2) Outstanding ensemble cast with Margaret Colin (Independence Day), Tracey Walter (Repo Man), Charles Napier (Silence of the Lambs), John Sayles, John Waters, the Feelies/Willies (graduation party band), Sister Carol (Married to the Mob) all the way down to extras, the hitchhikers and restaurant patrons. Everybody contributed to the texture of the film. 3) The U-turn on the street that used to house the original Film Forum location was a sly reference to the legacy of indie/classic cinema by Mr. Demme (Rest in Peace).
