Reviews
Mine: Great campy fun stuff. Just a couple of samples: "Character is what you are in the dark." -Lord John Whorfin "That was then, this is now." -Buckaroo Banzai "Home is where your wear your hat." - Dr. Emilio Lizardo "Laugha while you can Monkey Boy" - Dr. Emilio Lizardo "Remember, no matter where you go, there you are" -Buckaroo Banzai
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Off-the-wall pulp fiction by Earl Mac Rauch about a hero who's a neurosurgeon, physicist, rocket-car driver, rock singer, and government troubleshooter. Should be fun, but it's incoherent, like coming in at the second chapter of a Saturday matinee serial. Still, it has a fervent following. Aka BUCKAROO BANZAI. Panavision.
