If wanting to go back to Paradise is wrong...

...I don't want to be right. What we have here is a little music video clip someone called jks126d has put together using clips from the Phoebe Cates movie Paradise. It's set to a tinny version of the title song, as sung by Cates herself.

BTW, fair warning: This clip also contains, unavoidably, shots of a pre-Charles In Charge, pre-Bibleman Willie Aames. In a loincloth. When he appears with her, try to concentrate on Phoebe for the sake of your immortal soul. When it's a close-up of just him, shut your eyes for a second and try to think about something good.

Like how Phoebe was a better actress than you remember her or that most give her credit for being. After all, she managed to kiss Willie Aames, without looking as though she wanted to hurl. And Kevin Kline has the Oscar in that family? That's not cool.

(As an aside, did you know that frequent Oscar-show producer Gill Cates is Phoebe's uncle?)

Here's the clip.



And he (I'm just guessing) didn't even use the "showering under a waterfall" scene...

*Your* Phoebe? Them's fighting words, my friend.

Bring it on, big man, some things are worth fighting for!
