Isn't it great to see that the stars of this classic movie are still around, and that Charlie Sheen has become a link for us mere mortals to see them again. I think particularly of his '2 1/2 men' show, which not only stars Duckie, but reunited him with Harry Dean Stanton (the Bogart of modern times).

Absolutely! Charlie seems to be a real character, and I don't think he'd ever be able to carry off a serious role. It's also good that he's not a media-wh*re, and doesn't seem to have an ego (at least I assume not, not having ever seen him interviewed). That's probably because so many of his family are in Hollywood, and they appear to be quite grounded individuals too.

Great film! I've never seen John Malkovich give a bad performance yet, and I think he's probably the nearest we've got to one of the great old-school style film actors in Hollywood nowadays. I saw a TV interview with him once (on Jonathon Ross's chat show), and he seemed to be a really interesting, genuine, grounded yet eccentric person.

Well, not so much for Charlie Sheen because he has been around making movies every now and again... It's the John Cryer comeback that is notable for me... Not like his contemporaries, he has been quite inactive all these years after Pretty in Pink.
