Found Top Gun while channel surfing on Sunday night.
Mark, Josh and I first saw the movie when Josh was 4 and we were on vacation in CT. From that moment on Josh loved all aircraft and wanted to be a fighter pilot.
He memorized the dialogue, got the soundtrack and when the movie came out for the VCR it was the first movie we bought - for about $25 at the time.
Josh didn't grow up and become a fighter pilot but the movie definitely was a life changing experience - probably for the whole family. It's interesting what molds people.
