I am so so very sorry I forgot to alert you MPS readers that “St. Elmo’s Fire” is on AMC RIGHT NOW. To make up for it, I’m giving you a quick heads up that “Mystic Pizza” is on at 3:30 p.m. ET, immediately following the “Brat Pack” classic.
“Mystic Pizza”is a perfect “Mindless Movie Monday” flick: A great reminder that you never know what’s yet to come. Emerging starlet Julia Roberts has no idea she’s an Oscar-winner in the making; Lili Taylor hasn’t yet reigned over the indie film circuit; Vincent D’Onofrio hasn’t seen episode one of “Law & Order”. What am I saying? I’m saying that you, too, could have years of wild success ahead of you. You just have to pay your dues.
So readjust your naptime blanket, turn the channel to AMC and bask in the newness of these once small-time chick flick actors on the brink of stardom. Keep in mind: You could be, too.
