So shamelessly entertaining, and so, so rewatchable. Movies simply aren’t allowed to have this much personality anymore!

The plastic-surgery casualty scene? The basketball buzzer-beater sequence? The iconic Cuervo Jones? Maps-To-The-Stars Eddie? Stacy Keach’s sad little ponytail? Catching waves with Peter Fonda? The shark CGI that looks transposed from some vintage N64 game? Come on! Get into it!

It’s really too bad that Carpenter didn’t move forward and finish the trilogy with the most high-octane installment to date, “Escape from Present-Day Delaware.”
