This is an excellent 80s movie. That brings together 3 different characters on a journey of live. A rich kid,ex-juvie-farmer, hardworking book-warm all come together(with their share of problems and complaints)on the university's debate team. Excellent background music too bad they didn't make a soundtrack to the david foster molidy"listen to me". it would've been a hit.

I watched LISTEN TO ME in a debate class in college. The reason we watched the movie is because it's about the only movie ever made having to directly do with collegiate debate. From what I've gathered from former debate team members, the movie isn't very realistic about what actually goes on during real debates. However, it does establish the basic tenets of debating and for that it's worth watching. It's also worth watching if you want a good laugh. The movie is one of the most-cliched, melodramatic movies I have ever seen. There is absolutely nothing original in the movie whatsoever. Some of the dialogue was so bad that the movie was actually painful at times, soothed only by the laughter that followed some more poor dialogue.
Timothy Patrick Quill, playing Garson McKellar, has a secondary role to Kirk Cameron and Jami Gertz. However, his role is the one that's the real meat of this movie and the only performance really worth watching. Roy Scheider also stars as Coach Charlie Nichols. Overall, LISTEN TO ME is a totally average (almost below average) Hollywood movie. It's worth watching if you have an interest in debate, are a fan of any of the actors, or just need some good laugh therapy.

Though it has been years since I saw "Listen", I remember it not for the quality of the acting, which I thought was fine, but for delivering the most eloquent argument against abortion I had ever seen, even to this day. Any movie that gets the range of comments that have been posted, from rave to rage, is certainly has to be called controversial. So the debate scenes did not match up to the life experiences of some, it is a STORY. Its message is very, very strong, and delivered quite effectively. Isn't that what movies, books, plays, photography, et al are about? I just saw "Cider House Rules", the flip side of the abortion discussion from "Listen". Try watching "Listen" and "Cider House" back to back for what should be quite an emotional and intellectual experience. I rate both films at least 9 out of 10.
PS: I am 64, male, anti-abortion, and pro-choice.

As a high school debate coach, I use this movie ocassionally in class. It illustrates the atmosphere of college forensics tournaments, including events other than debate, even though it is not precise in portraying "reality." My students like to examine the debates and critique what happens in the climactic final round in front of the Supreme Court. Kurt Cameron and Jami Gertz have great appeal with high school students. As a movie, it is about average in quality and storyline--it is fairly predictable and slightly melodramatic; however, it is one of the few movies to provide a glimpse into competitive speech, so it will be of particular interest to those who come into contact with this activity (parents, students, teachers, etc.).

this moovie not only shows what a debate should be with all the heart you can put into it. It also shows the struggle many a young gril has gone through, and with friends like tucker she made it through. This movie shows the power of friendship at its all time high. Not only is it a made a good movie by its content but by its one liners lie "How can you just walk away from debate!" and "I lift cars for you every night" and the most inmportant "WE NEED A PLAN!" Speaking as a debater I think all debates should be like that with that much emtion and that much support. Everyone should see this movie and learn form it, Listen to Me!

It has been several years since I have seen this movie and it is one that still sticks in my head. It is a fantastic movie. It deals with many issues that are common and sometimes forgotten. Of course the abortion debate is one thing but the other issues dealt with are just as moving. The disability, sexual frustration, trust between friends, misunderstandings, and the kid pushed too hard. This movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen. As I said, I have not seen it in years and still I can remember almost every line. It is a must see for everyone especially teenagers.

So this movie isn't a realistic depiction of anything that has ever happened in college debate anytime, anywhere. None of us will ever debate in front of the Supreme Court, nor will abortion ever be a national topic (or at least I hope not). That said, weird stuff does happen in college debate, including one coach who used to pair his debaters up by their astrological signs. This movie is just a good time, fun to watch with other debaters over a few beers to laugh at. Great team bonding activity before a big tournament!
