This is really good movie that I didn't see until about 5 years ago. River Pheonix plays a marine who's about to go on leave to Vietnam. Him and his buddies decide to make a bet to see who can get the ugliest girl. Thats when Pheonix meets Lili Taylors character. Awww. Cruel, right? Well, during the course of the night he begins to fall for her. Its a touching, heart warming and heart breaking movie.
