Although it may be intended to indicate the inexperience of Kathy (Shelley Long) the usual way to do tequila shots is salt-tequila-lime ("lick it, slam it, suck it") rather than the lime-tequila-salt order she uses. See more »
Just get one thing straight, Wimp. We may be stuck with you, but that doesn't mean you're going to ruin our trip just because you're a little brat kid! We're going to be as crude as we want, as filthy as we want, and as gross as we want! You understand that, Wimp?

Lay off this movie, people. It's a teen-age sex romp comedy. It doesn't pretend to be anything more. And as for teen sex-romp comedies, it's pretty entertaining.
Tom Cruise is in it. Shelley Long has a good part. And the guy from Breaking Away has the best character of all. What I really liked about this movie was how it "romanticized" Tijuana. It makes you want to take a trip down there and raise some hell yourself.
This movie is a good time on a Friday night. If you're gonna rent a movie like this, rent this one. You won't be disappointed.
