There is obviously more music in the film, but this little half-soundtrack is all that I can find. Overture is fantastic, it’s classic Elfman with instruments he wasn’t using too often at the time. Do Not Go Gently… is a nice little track that builds up. The Brawl sounds like a cartoon, it’s pretty fun. Action Medley is an okay little background piece. Classroom Secretary isn’t too notable.

Triple Lindy actually kind of reminds me of E.T., it’s a nice little track. Love Suite doesn’t really work too well on its own. Study Montage kind of redoes the overture, it’s still neat though. This is just a nice little slice of Danny’s early film career, and how brilliant it could be even then. The overture can get stuck in my head like nobody’s business.

Final Rating: 6.5/10
