I love this movie man, judd nelson who never really took off after m,aking this film, is great in this as the street smart kid shaking up the establishment in old fashioned college.
The coach of the team is also very funny, and some of the lines are greatest that I have ever heard.
Watching this film takes me back to the 80's, its what teen comedies were all about, the absolutely awful 80's fashion, the hairstyles, the synth score that just is washed all over the film, I just love this stuff.
if you want to get back to your missed youth, and reminisce about the old days, get this, this essential 80's viewing that should be on the shelf with the breakfast club and all the rest, man I love this film.
If you guys haven't seen, find it and slot it into your DVD player and, sit back and enjoy.
