(9.19) Who would have thought that out of this vapid array we’d still be discussing Rob Lowe? Apparently the New York Times reviewer saw something promising back in 1985.
In the case of Rob Lowe, whose irresponsible pretty boy becomes the film’s central figure, a matinee-idol future is assured, and perhaps something more; Mr. Lowe reveals an interesting petulance in some of his less showily emotional scenes, and brings a disarming warmth to the finale.
(Don’t miss Lowe in “Behind the Candelabra.” Someone should spin off that character.)
“St. Elmo’s Fire” is rated R. Running time 110 minutes.
