...[Fiorentino has] undeniable appeal...

Rating: C -- Its saving grace is the understated and uncanny performance by Modine. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5.0 -- I would hardly be the first critic to suggest that its rote sports-movie structure and the presence of Linda Fiorentino as an implausibly available older woman masks Vision Quest's strange homoerotic subtext. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- A movie with some nice surprises, mostly because it takes the time to create some interesting characters. Full Review

That's the problem with all of "Vision Quest" -- when the movie ends with Louden narrating off-screen his "live for today" philosophy, it's plausible in his mouth, a joke for adults. Full Review

Description by

High school wrestler Louden Swain is a man obsessed, trying to shed 23 pounds in a dangerously short time and take on Shute, the undefeated, tough-as-nails 168-pound champion who's the best wrestler in the state.

Matthew Modine stars as the mop-headed student undeterred in his Vision Quest... until the day a sexy drifter (Linda Fiorentino) threatens to pin Louden and his dreams to the mat of unrequited love. In her first film, Madonna shines while performing "Gambler" and "Crazy for You."

Product Description:

A high school wrestler falls head-over- heels in love with a beautiful artist. Madonna makes a brief appearance during which she sings her hits, "Crazy For You," and "Gambler."
