Do you know what people like? They like movies about underdog hockey teams, they like feel-good teen movies about having detention on Saturday morning, and even more than that, they like “The Outsiders”.
What’s the common denominator? Emilio Estevez. Whether he is warming hearts as the coach that cares in Mighty Ducks 1, 2 & 3, stealing our hearts as a teen heart throb in the Breakfast Club, or showing off his tougher side in Young Guns, he proves time and time again that he can fill the theatre seats. (And not just on the easy times like over long weekends and holidays, but also the hard-to-sell times like August.)
Ok, so I know what you are thinking: sure, we all know he makes great movies, but what else has he done? Paula Abdul and Demi Moore! That’s right, he was married to Abdul for two years and was engaged to Moore (guess that one didn’t take). He clearly knows how to win over the ladies.
So, in these uncertain times, we salute you, Emilio. Keep keeping it real, keeping it Estevez, and keeping it Mighty.
QUACK! QUACK! QUACK!
