The film's "Sure Thing" title can be defined by one of the movie's taglines which states that a sure thing "comes once in a lifetime". A line of dialogue from the picture further elaborates on this by saying that a sure thing is "a no questions asked, no strings attached, no guilt involved, 100% safe bet". See more »

I like this one. Having always been a fan of Daphne Z, I have to say its strange that her career hasn't taken off better than this promised. She has poise, presance, looks, ability. Cusack himself is still around, be it in 'Thin Red Line' or '8 Men Out' or whatever.
I like how sweet natured this is, and how these kids aren't all cock-sure sex-fiends, unlike in all those other Porky's type flix of the era.
The soundtrack is pretty good too-the Cars, Huey Lewis, Wang Chung, Rod Stewart too. Who would thought that Rob Reiner'd turn out to be such a good director? This was his first traditional movie Move, if you will-after the Psuedo-documentary 'Spinal Tap' from the previous year-and it's a good one.
Very 80s, but a Good 80s flick. You will like this if you get a chance to see it.
