| Not as bad as people say...
Although filled with some dead air, and the plot just drags on, Candy Mountain can be seen as a mid '80's curio filled with New Wave 80's rock stars (Buster Poindexter! Tom Waits!) and curious cameos (Rita Mcneill???). After being tempted by musical bigshot Poindexter, a struggling musician, (played by Kevin O'Connor, looking all the world like Billie Joe Armstrong) agrees to find a long-thought-dead musician. Off on the road he goes, meeting some wacky people along the way! The acting here is OK, with some on the histronics side. But O'Connor seems to keep things on an even keel. But the problem is, the movie goes on FAR too long, and one senses that even O'Connor was getting tired of the whole thing. Worth a look if you could find it for the curio factor though.
