You... are... there!, 19 July 2005
Author: truwolfmn from United States

For anyone who didn't make it to Fort Lauderdale in the 80s for Spring Break, this is as good as it gets. Luxuriate in the process of getting wild, drunk, lucky and laid along with Nelson, Adam, Stu and O.T. in the last hotel room in town. It's all about the fun, except that Last American Virgin Nelson is hounded by his politician stepfather and his bumbling henchman, Eddie Potmore. A timeless comedy that should be a required course in how to have fun before you grow up.

There is some great music by .38 Special, "Caught Up In You", that accompanies some wacky hotel shenanigans that NO young adult should ever, ever have to endure, but I suspect a few may have. There are no statements to be made at all. No attempts at anything heavy in this movie, ala Porky's. It is just pure fun from start to finish. I still watch it occasionally, and I highly recommend it to anyone who missed it.
