Not much to it.
31 August 2002 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

This is certainly one of the bigger pieces of fluff to come out of the '70s. A 20-something year old high school "kid" is considered to be a total loser. He takes a brand new Chevy convertible from an acquaintance without asking permission. Now he's becoming friends with the cool guys and catching the eyes of some ladies. That's it. Harmless but usually quite boring. 2/10
