The make, model and color of the car the guys cruise to Tijuana in was a light-red 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air  convertible. In 1965, the year in which this film was set, the car was a fairly common one to see and could be bought for a fairly reasonable price. Nowadays a restored car of that type could bring more than $100,000. See more »

I heard about this guy who got some spanish flies for his girlfriend, because she wasn't putting out. He gave her one and stopped at a liquor store or something, and when he came out guess what he found?
She was dead on top of the gearshift.
You know the same guy!
No, the same story.

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.
