The Time You Need a Friend (1984)
Reviewed by: Darryl on 1999-12-21
John Woo's over-the-top higher-octane take on Neil Simon's THE SUNSHINE BOYS, with two elderly statesmen of entertainment (once a team, now enemies) re-uniting for a special live television broadcast. The Hong Kong melodramatic approach works where THE SUNSHINE BOYS failed miserably.
Reviewer Score: 8
