The film had a cult following but didn't achieve the notability of others like "Porky's" and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High".

More interesting is that it boasts a highly impressive soundtrack with songs from The Police, Blondie, Journey, Devo, The Cars, Human League, Reo Speedwagon and U2. No further details on when Ratner would get to work on this, he's still attached to helm "Hunting Eichmann" and »
