Very funny 80s Comedy. Another winner from Moustapha Akkad (HALLOWEEN)
24 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was actually the first movie I bought after the power came back on. And I have to say, it was $15 well spent. I happen to like some 80s comedies. Now onto the movie. Apologies for the rather short intro.

On the eve of his first day at Monroe Prep, Dan Garten (Played by Gary Hershberger) decides to try his luck one more time at a prestigious nightclub. Failing to pique a most attractive woman's interest with all of his once-popular lines, he finally wins her attention after pretending to own a red sports car parked in the valet parking lot. When the mob realizes that their car as well as $250,000 which is stuffed under the driver's seat of the car have just disappeared off the lot, an outrageous pursuit begins.

Overall, this film was pretty funny and had some funny jokes such as the penis enlarger lotion gag. This movie has yet to receive an official DVD release, so if you can find a copy, I think you should get it.
