It makes you believe that you could be liked more and not be laughed at

Patrick Dempsey plays nerdy Ronnie Miller, who is so on the outside of society at his high school that he is known simply as "Lawn Boy" because he mows everyone's lawn for his part-time job. He wants to be popular for his upcoming senior year, and he sees his chance when cheerleader Cindy Mancini is in a jam, having ruined her mother's suede outfit at a party and needing $1000 to replace it.
Ronnie happens to be at the mall at the same time, purchasing a new telescope with his lawn-mowing money when he sees Cindy's dilemma. He offers to pay for the new outfit if she will pretend to be his girlfriend for a month and introduce him to the popular circle.
Although this seems completely crazy to Cindy, she does it (after a great little makeover -- quite the staple of 1980s teen movies!) She even starts to like Ronnie as a person, until popularity goes to his head.
People are lemmings and will believe whatever they are told, particularly in the classic scene where Ronnie starts doing the "African Anteater Dance" which he saw on a show he mistook for 'American Bandstand'. Everyone at the school dance follows him instantly.
Don't miss a very young Seth Green as Ronnie's annoying brother! He is great as a smarmy kid!

...unless they add decent DVD extras. If we consumers stick together and avoid buying *bad* DVDs of great movies, maybe distributers will do the work that that is worthy of the movie, the medium, and the price. I would give the movie itself five stars for story, script, humor, message, and acting.
Enjoyable features: original aspect ratio, audio commentaries (by director, writers, actors), "making of"/other featurettes, interviews, deleted/extended/blooper scenes, cast & crew info, etc. Also, since DVD "Region 1" includes USA and Canada, each DVD should have both English and French audio and subtitle support. DVDs are expensive, but a versatile medium for movie lovers, so should not be just the bare-bones movie. (Otherwise, a Special Edition should come out at the same time the bare-bones version is released.)
A minor beef I have with Disney and Buena Vista is their excluding the original movie release year from the packaging, forcing movie lovers to have to look it up elsewhere. Every movie (DVD/VHS) should have the movie runtime and original release year on the packaging. (Similarly, music CDs should have track numbers, names, and durations on the back of the case, unless a multi-disk set where space doesn't permit -- but many apathetic producers leave off some or all of this information.)

As a member of this time period, I loved this movie and recommend it to all the teenagers who work for me in place of the, "She's all That" which I felt was just not as good as this. I must agree that until this movie appears in the Widescreen version I am not interested but will be first in line when and if it does. I only buy widescreen in dvd and dvd is all I buy.
