Although not up to the standard of Madonna in Desperately Seeking Susan, Cyndi Lauper (in her second feature) isn't bad at playing a version of herself: a tough cookie with a soft centre. Would-be actress Cyd (Lauper) has got as far as playing a mermaid in a Miami Beach hotel bar. After witnessing her boyfriend's murder, she hightails it out of town and hooks up with an unlikely lover (Keith) and a streetwise kid (Pinto). With the killer on their trail, the mismatched family jumps the Manhattan train for a predictably madcap adventure. For Lauper fans only.
