Blinded by the Light

Blinded by the Light ★★

Not completely without charm and sincerity, but nevertheless, Blinded by the Light is a painfully earnest, unbelievably cheesy, paint-by-numbers coming-of-age film like many before it, cashing in on easy 80s nostalgia (particularly in its predictable soundtrack), with bad acting and an even worse script, which has its cast quote Bruce Springsteen lyrics to each other in dialogue scenes like serial killers.
