| My Favorite Movie with Amanda Wyss that should be officially available on DVD
This is my favorite movie with Amanda Wyss when she has the most beautiful and natural look without makeup before moving on to other movies like Nightmare on Elm Street, Silverado, & Shakma. She plays 16 year old Tobi Jensen who decides to travel from Ohio to San Francisco (the home of Dirty Harry Callahan & The Doobie Brothers) to find and meet her mother (Loni Anderson) for the first time in 13 years after her father unfortunately dies. Tobi's voice during the time she meets and gets acquainted with her mother for the first time after 13 years sounds so beautiful and soft when she is so happy about the meaningful moment. The first few minutes are my favorite part of the movie until she discovers the truth about her mother's secret life as a high priced call girl, which is when her voice begins to change when she is enraged with anger. Then it becomes sad and depressing when Tobi begins to feel unloved and unwanted by her mother who cannot commit to her responsibilities as a parent. Meanwhile, This movie should be an example of how everybody should make the right choices regarding their life. I would really love to see this classic meaningful movie become officially available on DVD, which I would unquestionably buy. I have not watched this for 20 years, and I really miss it. Overall, my heart really went out to Tobi because of all the bad luck and trauma she suffered.
