Cute movie
9 July 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have only seen this movie once when it came out back in 1985 at the movie theatre. It's not really memorable, but the plot is cute. A teenage guy whose father owns a motel makes friends at his new high school by offering the honeymoon suite for them to get busy in! Only in the '80s could a movie like this be pulled off! It's light entertainment, and is actually entertaining. It's not one of the better '80s teen flicks, but it's not offensive either. It's just a cute little flick that just sort of came and went, but largely has been forgotten.
