Running on Empty is in the bracket?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

it is on The Guardian's list.  you find it weird to be included apparently?
But I wish the public could, in the midst of its pleasures, see how blatantly it is being spoon-fed, and ask for slightly better dreams.

Yeah.  Just my personal opinion, obviously, but it's such a nothing film, outside of pedigree.  I'd sooner include Lucas.  Or The Falcon and the Snowman.

i haven't seen Running on Empty in ages, but used to like it.  i reckon it needs to be read against Reagan-era politics.  bizz, you'll be fine :)

You know, it's possible I'm mixing it up with Little Nikita.
