Format: DVD
Homer is a penniless guy (James Belushi) trying to get to his father's home in Oregon City. He is desperate for a lift as he doesn't have much money. Eddie is a quirky woman (Whoopi Goldberg), who has a car and a strange sense of humour. They meet one day in the scrap yard, as Homer ends up sleeping in her car, and the friendship begins. This is their plight and how they got to Oregon city, via Eddie's home town to see her mother.

This is a bizarre movie, there's not much going on in it, but at the same time a great friendship emerges between the two. I like the way they stick together no matter what, even though Eddie tries to hide the fact that she would go in a blink of an eye if she wanted to. James and Whoopi work great together, and are really funny - though sometimes you feel they've borrowed a lot from other buddy comedies.

This is worth renting, as both leads are excellent, but there's no extras, and the DVD is poor, there are artefacts all over the screen, even colour changes in the petrol station which looks strange, and the sound is not very good, it's just about a 2.0 mix, but sometimes the sound sounds compressed like a badly made MP3 file. This looks more like a TV movie the way it's filmed too. You do get the trailer, but that's about it.

Rent, don't buy.

An often overlooked but delightful film. James Belushi is superb as the slightly simple Homer and Whoopi Goldberg is wonderful as the escaped mental patient Eddie who, we find out as the film progresses, is terminally ill. Together they form an unlikely friendship as they drive across America trying to find Homer's long-lost father. The pace of the film is good and the mood can swing from hilarious to downright sad, but the whole affair is very watchable indeed. One real bonus is the music- just brilliant stuff driving the film along. The centrepiece and end credit tune is 'Home' by the wonderful and sadly missed Richie Havens - a lovely ballad which does not appear to be on any of his albums. All in all this is a terrific piece of cinema.

This film is great, a little different from Whoopi's other films like; Jumpin' Jack Flash and Burglar. This film was really good it kept me clued to my chair all the way through. The chemistry is great and so was the acting, overall i give it 4 stars. Well worth checking out but may be hard to get.

NEVER FORGOTTEN 26 Feb 2006
By VarietyIsthespiceofLife - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I still remember this movie after all theses years, and I believed I have only seen this once or twice. It was shown in the best atmosphere...I was up 2 AM or so, and everything is just so quiet at that time. I felt every emotion of this film thoroughly. This movie is one of those gems, and I'm not suprised, because the 80's produced several memorable movies for me. This movie deals with longing, hopefulness, virginity, and some fun. I used to try to look for this movie from time to time, and had forgotten the title. I was irritated , because I remembered the name Eddie, and everytime I'd look it up; the title; Eddie, that basketball movie w/ Whoop would show up, and I'm like NOoooo!!! Well I will continue my search for a dvd, and if not I'll just order the VHS, there is still many good movies which haven't made the switch: The Dummy (starring Levar Burton), Leadbelly, and some others I'd really like to own.

It's NOT a comedy movie ! 3 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Don't get mistaken. It is NOT a comedy movie. Rather a road movie with a bitter taste to it. As Whoopie Goldberg plays a vagrant with a tumor in her head which is slowly killing her and Belushi plays a retard who's in search of his parents who have left him behind in hospital 14 years ago.
This is rather a drama and shows superior acting skills by both main characters. Definitely worth an oscar (but never nominated). So don't go thinking this is a family movie that you can watch during christmas eve !! It is NOT.

Homer and Eddie 6 Jun 2012
By Eagle Eye - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A wonderful movie with two great actors. This movie can make one laugh and cry. It is about two strangers that come to trust each other and become great friends. I have seen this movie numerious times and have never tired of seeing it. Both actors put on a brilliant show of talent.Homer and Eddie (The Lost Collection)

No comedy that 15 Nov 2006
By Eolake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw this when it was first out, and I was shocked that it was billed as a comedy (like Nicolas Cage's The Weather Man also was last year), when it was nothing at all like a comedy. In fact it was a quite depressing movie. I suspect that those responsible for writing movie posters just don't bother to actually watch the movie, and just guess on the genre, based on the starring actors.

On the fence 22 Feb 2014

I love the actors, but I wasn't sold on the movie. It seemed to be missing something with such talent.
