very funny 80's comedy!
24 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

i really like this movie. i first saw it in the late-80's or very early 1990. i still watch it now. it's a movie about a troublesome,but cool dude named dan who steals a cool car that has a quarter of a million dollars in it from mobsters. he goes to a special school to hang out with his buddy greg,and meet girls over at a near by school for girls. the dean of the school is very funny in a lot of scenes. but the funniest person in this movie is the dean's pet student named carl. carl steals every scene he's in. the dean also does business with the same mobsters who dan stole from. the mobsters later get a lead from the dean on who stole their money,and car. the dean hates dan,and greg. he's always sending his pet student carl to see what dan,and greg are doing. some people might think the comedy in this movie is stupid,but i think it's very funny,and entertaining. it's kind of unknown. but it has been on USA late at night before. but not very often. all in all a very funny,cool,and entertaining movie. i give free ride *** out of ****
