Storyline

The story begins with Sherry (Paula Abdul) declaring plans to hold a party that night. Upon hearing about this party, Jerry's friend Paul (Kirk Burnett) encourages him to ask his crush Lori Scott (Karen Capelle) to accompany him to the event. On his way to doing this Jerry encounters several obstacles, including repeated run-ins with Keith (Mikal Robert Taylor), a school bully, and Vicki (Toni Mazarin), an ill-intentioned girl who hopes Jerry will ask her to the party so she can spite a previous boyfriend.

Imagine eighth grade... as a musical.

Now, take your head out of the oven and watch this obscure independent movie. It's a mercifully brief singing, dancing love story featuring actual, honest-to-God teenyboppers from Van Nuys -- one of whom was Paula Abdul. Look quick and you'll also catch the wonderful singer/songwriter Dave Frishberg as a shop teacher. Too bad he didn't compose the score, which is cute but unmemorable -- what a musical about junior high really deserves is a Brecht/Weill soundtrack.
