There are some 80s movies out there that just have that feel to it. That 80s feel that is just so damn likable. Fright Night has it, The Stuff has it, The Blob...the list goes on and on. And that list definitely has The New Kids in there somewhere.
The story revolves around a brother and sister who are trying to live their lives with their Uncle in Florida after the tragic deaths of their parents. All seems pretty good until the school jerks take an interest in the sister. Who's played by Becky from Full House. Well, being well-raised kids, they know bad apples when they see one. So they try to keep their distance and tell these ruffians that they don't want any trouble. Well, too bad for our bro and sis, they've got loads of trouble coming. Let's hope they're up for the battle.
Like I said above, The New Kids shares that special charm and energy that most of the classic from the 80s held. It's lively, it's interesting, the characters are fun and over-the-top, and it had some pretty sweet scenes. Shame though you don't get to see Becky strip. Ya get so close too! Even though there's no skin, the flick is still a fun ride and should definitely be seen by fans of the 80s, especially fans of revenge thrillers.
