With Charlie Sheen, Toni Basil, Alex Cox, Bob Dylan, Catherine Keener. Theatrical release directed by Dennis Hopper as Alan Smithee. 1990.
From the VHS cover:
When murder is your business, you’d better not fall in love with your work.
Jodie Foster stars as Anne Benton, an artist who see’s what she shouldn’t — a mob assassination. The police want her to testify; the mob wants her dead. So she goes on the lam, moves to another state and adopts another identity. But she can’t hide from Milo, the mobster sent to kill her.
One look at his target and the hit man has a change of heart. He doesn’t want her life, he wants her love. Before long this unlikely couple is on the run from both the cops and the crooks, dodging bullets and trying to sort out who to trust, who to kill, and who to love.

Major League on VHS. Starring Tom Berenger, Charlie Sheen, Corbin Bernsen. With Margaret Whitton, James Gammon, Rene Russo, Bob Uecker, Wesley Snipes, Charles Cyphers, Chelcie Ross, Dennis Haysbert. Directed by David S. Ward. 1989.
From the box:
She’s beautiful, smart, goal-oriented, and she just inherited the Cleveland Indians. Unfortunately, she wants to move the franchise to Miami, and a losing season is her only ticket to Florida. So she signs the wildest gang of screwballs that ever spit tobacco.
They’re handsome, but they’re hopeless! Her catcher (Tom Berenger) is a washed-up womanizer who struck out in life. Her ace pitcher (Charlie Sheen) is a punked-out crazy who struck out with the law. And her third baseman (L.A. Law’s Corbin Bernsen) is more concerned fielding endorsements than grounders.
Throw in a bus load of other misfits and you’ve got yourself a hilarious line-up thats destined for disaster! Or is it?

Platoon on VHS. Starring Tom Berenger, Willem Dafoe, Charlie Sheen. With Forest Whitaker, Kevin Dillon, John C. McGinley, Johnny Depp. Written and directed by Oliver Stone. 1986.
From the box:
The first casualty of war is innocence.
Seen through the eyes of college drop-out, Chris Taylor (Charlie Sheen), the war is a real nightmare — a private hell of fears from outside and in — with enemies on both sides of the line. His platoon’s allegiance is split between leaders Sergeant Barnes and Sergeant Elias portrayed by Tom Berenger and Wilem Dafoe in their powerful Oscar-nominated performances. Barnes is a scar-faced, gung-ho fanatic bent on destroying the elusive Viet Cong. Elias is a different type of soldier — he has lost faith in the war, but not in man. Friction between the two sergeants leads to a second war, in every way as deadly as the one being waged against the enemy.
