Goofs

Throughout the party scene, there are instances of kids being in more than one place at a time, depending on the camera view. For example, a brown-haired boy in a gray sweater vest is shown dancing; when the camera view changes, however, he is standing (and not dancing) in a different part of the room. See more »

cool movie, awesome soundtrack!!!
18 June 2000 | by (Santa Maria California) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie, it totally reminds me of my high school days. The soundtrack is awesome. I am a huge nic cage fan and this is my favorite movie that he is in. I love the storyline, it is a total love story, against the odds kind of thing. I think anyone who graduated in the early eighties (1980-1984) should see the movie. It totally brought back memories of high school for me.
