I totally agree with you. With this score I find myself in a ultra-rare state of disagreeing with every word Christian penned about the score's qualities.
Accidental Tourist is, in my opinion, superior to his better-known successors, such as Sabrina, Presumed Innocent, Stepmom or Terminal.
The funny thing about the score is that it must have been listened to by David Newman who composed for The War of the Roses, since there are strong similarities between one cue in the Accidental Tourist and the War of the Roses score, my another strong favorite.
