What would they say, If we up and ran away....

So almost all of last month (October) I had a song stuck in my head, it was "What Would They Say" and it's in the movie "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble", it's such a cheesy song yet very romantic (ughh...)...

The Boy in the Plastic Bubble is about a teenager named "Tod Lubitch" who was born with no immunities so he has to be in a plastic bubble in order to be free from unfiltered air or whatever the Hell. Tod lives in his germ free room which is also known as "The Plastic Bubble" and all he does in there is read, study, watch TV, dance to cheesy music, feed his germ free mouse and spy on people with binoculars, Fun stuff eh? Oh yeah. The movie deals with Tod's personal life and health, he has a crush on his cute neighbor "Gina" (played by Glynnis O'Connor) so he tries his best to get closer with her and even attend school which later on he gets to do by wearing a special space suit. He also gets visits from his Doctor that gives him the latest scoop on trying to find a cure for him. Oh, and there's also a scene where Tod meets another bubble boy that apparently masturbates a lot and when he gets his immunities back, he's going to get a hooker to be nasty with. I'm not kidding, that's what the weird kid says. Really... Really!!!

This is a very sweet movie and it will really cheer up and perhaps make you cry because it ends all well but very cheesy and uhh.. sad since we don't know what will happen to Tod. If you're looking for something non-trashy and romantic then why not this get on DVD, it won't cost you a lot. 6/10.
