Tommy: She said she didn't want me to wear clothes like this in her class. So I took 'em off.
Robin: You didn't.
Tommy: Yah, right down to my underwear. Miss Bukowski turned this really neat shade of purple. It was kind of artistic.

Fun gymnastics movie!
7 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is a fun and entertaining movie for anyone who likes gymnastics. It features Keanu Reeves (pre-"Bill & Ted") as the wannabe boyfriend of aspiring highschool gymnastic champion Olivia D'Abo. One of the more memorable scenes shows Robin & Leah at the drive-in having a tumbling challenge to see who's the "best"--Robin "wins" with a running-roundoff-backhandspring-backflip over a red sportscar. The movie is also completely "80's"--with big hair, pop music and funky clothes. While the technical aspects of the movie leave a bit to be desired, and the plot line is a bit predictable, it does have the requisite happy ending.
