Overlooked gem.
6 January 1999 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I haven't met a lot of people that have seen this film and I think most will overlook it because it doesn't have many stars in it. This is a quiet little film with a great sense of the word "mischief", and how to get into it. It's a typical 80's movie with teen-agers having sex and drinking booze, but I loved these kinds of movies when I was growing up. Even though I had to sneak to watch when Mom and Dad were asleep. This movie has a great sense of nostalgia and a very nice love story to boot. Not the greatest film ever made, but very entertaining none the less.
