Teen sex comedy set in 1965 which follows four Los Angeles school friends, Woody, Dave, Spider, Wendell and the series of misadventures they get into when they travel south of the border to Tijuana, Mexico for a night of cruisin', causing trouble, and to settle a pact to lose their virginity before the night is over, while a young woman, named Kathy, accompanies them for different reasons: to arrange a quick divorce from her husband.

I loved this movie cause it's so funny and it has the then unknown Tom Cruise and Shelley Long in this movie before they went onto fame later on the 80's, but the best performance goes to Jackie Earle Haley as Dave, who is a sex obsessed pal who is a Frank Sinatra wannabe, and I also liked John Stockwell's character Spyder who came from a broken home, Tom Cruise is the intellegent honor student. This movie is about 3 high school seniors who want to go to Tijuana in search of sex (without their parents knowing it) and things don't work out the way they want it as Dave's little brother Wendell 'Wimp' (John Navin) goes along for the ride and later they shoplift a grocery store and the owner's wife goes with them cause she claims that she's gonna divorce him and she finds out that they stoled some items at the grocery store but she didn't care, the situations that the boys got themselves in Tijuana are hilarious and they later meet crooked cops, insane marine sailors and junkyard ruffians, will they get out of Tijuana alive, will the three boys lose their virginity, in order to find out, watch this movie and it's way better than the movies of today, I think that Losin' It deserves more recognition than what it gets cause it's a funny movie and if you can find this movie at your local video store, rent it and have a good laugh, it's a great way to spend a weekend evening.
