Is anyone else watching this on AMC right now? I used to love this movie when I was a kid. I must have watched it 20 times back then. I figured it's been about 20 years since I've seen it so I'd watch it again. It seems I'm liking just as much now as I did then.

The movie that made me want an AK. When I was 3.

Seriously, I love that movie so much. Regardless of the rediculous concept (Hindsight's benefit), its what got me interested in my major. Anyone know of a directors cut that has the scene at McDonalds and all that?
Back in the day, my grandmother on my fathers side was a hard, hard lefty. I remember seeing the film and telling her how much I liked it.
I remember how much she flipped out and scolded me about how the soviets were our friends and we were more likely to invade and occupy them than they us.
Thinking back, I believe that was the time I decided to become a republican.

I used to love that movie when I was younger. Watched it w/ my oldest son a few months ago and he thought it was stupid (I still liked it thought).

I've got the DVD also.
There is also a used DVD place not far from my house and I seen the other day they also had some!
Might have to go pick me up a couple.
One of my favorite movies ever!
It's 11:59 on Radio Free America; this is Uncle Sam, with music, and the truth until dawn. Right now I've got a few words for some of our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone: "the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall", "john has a long mustache, john has a long mustache". It's twelve o'clock, American, another day closer to victory. And for all of you out there, on, or behind the line, this is your song.

I like it, I've got it on VHS; it's available for rent at my BlockBuster.
I'm too young to be this old!
Getting old isn't good for you!
I think I saw it in the wal-mart $5 bin at one time, Then watched it on AMC a few months back, Have not seen it in the bin since. :( Great movie though.

I didn't mean to, but I stayed up and watched the whole thing. Sure, some things were corny, but how many movies are still watchable 24 years later?
I Loved that Movie
My cousin and I (both 11 years old) planned on how we would defend Winston County Alabama from a Soviet invasion.
I still think that's why the Soviet Union collasped, they realized they could never take Winston county so they quit.
A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.
Great movie! I own it on VHS and DVD.

A must see for every Red Blooded American. First saw it when I was a few years younger than the characters in the movie.Yes, I have a copy. No I won't loan it out.Col, were going to go shoot up an armored column, early bird gets the worm.
Edit to add: I have killed a dear, no I didn't drink.
