KEVIN BACON & JAMIE GERTZ TEN-SPEED IN 'QUICKSILVER'

A very cute and underrated 80's starlet Jamie Gertz in Quicksilver
cast: Kevin Bacon, Jami Gertz, Rudy Ramos, Lawrence Fishburne, Paul Rodriguez
year: 1986 rating: ***1/2

What could have been Kevin Bacon's COCKTAIL (or renamed The Wolf of Ten-Speed) is actually pretty decent...

Bacon as a New York City Wall Street broker who loses everything in one shot, and ends up a 10-speed messenger: swerving in and out of traffic with ease. Side characters include Jami Gertz and Paul Rodriquez, not just props but with their own important stories within. But who really shines is Rudy (THE DRIVER) Ramos as a villainous drug dealer using the riders as runners, including Lawrence (then Larry) Fishburne and Gertz herself, who winds up the damsel Bacon must eventually save: all the while trying for an 11th hour comeback in his old profession.
