Movies of this type are pretty rare nowdays, but during the mid-eighties they were everywhere.
What makes this movie stand out is it's charm.
The acting by the leads (Baio,Aames,Schachter & Thomas) is great and the characters, though a little stereo-typed,are well fleshed out.
Scatman Crothers is criminally underused as the wisecracking school coach and Robert Mandan and Sue Ane Langdon's affair doesn't really go anywhere.
Worth seeing if you're into the following:-
Scott Baio: Gives a great performance of the school scientist torn between his best friend's gambling stunts and the love of his girlfriend.
Heather Thomas:Fresh from 'The Fall Guy', Thomas plays the token snooty cheerleader and plays her very well.
The nudity content is a little too strong for youngsters which is a shame because this is an adolescent's perfect movie.
