Random thing I stumbled upon - did you know the 1986 Goldie Hawn football comedy Wildcats marked the film debuts of both Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes? (Well credited debut at least - Woody was an extra in Harper Valley PTA eight years prior.) Just a few years later the two of them would make White Men Can't Jump together and literally alter the course of human history. But in 1986 they were just a pair of jockstraps swinging in the breeze.
.I've never actually seen Wildcats though - have you? Also pictured down below (on the right) is Jsu Garcia aka Nick Corri aka the tighty-whities-clad dude Freddy slices up in the opening of the original Nightmare on Elm Street, once again rocking some tighty-whities. Is that all he wore in the 80s? Not complaining.
Wildcats is an ordinary underdog comedy but Goldie Hawn is as charming as ever. What really makes it worth catching are all the locker rooms scenes and a quick full frontal shot in one of those of Nick Corri, Wesley Snipes and some others.
I haven't seen it in a while so I I'm not sure if it holds up, but I remember it being a lot of fun...classic 80s comedy with a topless Goldie. Gotta love the cheerleaders and their "you're momma says you ugly, you ugly" routine.
