Trivia

In a scene where Beth tells Jay-Jay that she just wants to be friends, Jay-Jay replies, "Like Wally and Lumpy... I'll pass." Tony Dow and Frank Bank, who played Wally and Lumpy in Leave It to Beaver (1957), also appear in the film. See more »

Quotes

Nadine: [to Peggy] No! Look, I don't want to go into the fun house. I know we have to get Beau Middleton's picture, but I'm afraid of the dark and whenever I get scared I jump into somebody's arms. If I jump into your arms, people are gonna talk. I can't afford that. As it is my phone's got cobwebs.

worth seeing for Crispin Glover & Michael Zorek
16 June 2000 | by (Zuma Beach California) – See all my reviews

update 12/2/2002: OK just watched High School USA again for the first time since my review 12 years ago. It's still not a great film,but it is fun and i'll give it a break since its a TV movie. It's actually neat to see so many 80's TV actors in one place (and no less than 4 from Leave it to Beaver!). Not much of a story: rich,preppy A-hole (Edwards) has sweet,cute girlfriend (McKeon) that nice,funny normal guy (Fox) likes. Fox and Edwards make a bet on a car race that will somehow determine who is the coolest guy in school and most likely win over sweet girl McKeon. whatever. Crispin Glover actually has more screen time than anyone but Michael J Fox. Crispin & Michael Zorek provide most of the comedy as Fox's loser friends. I'll raise my movie review to a 6 and add another point for Glover/Zorek to make my final grade a 7.
