Hard to Hold is a 1984 film. It was meant as a starring vehicle for Rick Springfield, who had a solid television acting resume and a blossoming rock/pop career, but had yet to breakout in feature films. It stars Springfield, Janet Eilber and Patti Hansen. The film features many Springfield songs which are included on the soundtrack to the film. It is widely criticized as one of the worst films ever made.


James Roberts (Springfield), being a pop idol, is used to having his way with women. He meets child psychologist Diana Lawson (Eilber) in a car accident, however, who not only doesn't swoon at his attentions, but has also never heard of him. He tries to win her affection, but it's complicated by the fact that his ex-lover, Nicky Nides (Hansen), is still a member of his band.
