Released just after Thanksgiving, the film had a dismal run at the box office and barely made over $250,000 dollars. However, it found a second life as a late-night staple on HBO, which was in the process of becoming a force in home cable. The movie was shown in such heavy rotation that watching it on HBO became a rite-of-passage for many adolescents in the late 1980s, leading to it developing a cult following. See more »

I'm a little bummed out that this movie didn't float with people when it came out(check out the box office gross) This was a fun movie to watch and very enjoyable, and I think it may have gained some strength since the 80s release because it showed what people actually do in that time and era. Mind you I wasn't around in the 80s, born in 1992, but this film is insightful to what it was like and all the stories I've heard from people. At least all you people on this site understand the good nature and entertainment value of the film. Look at rogerebert.com and he gives it 1 star while users on that site give it half just to please him and fit in, he isn't the greatest anyway, he gives four stars to crap like Rendition. But I thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie its hardly ever on and it is not on DVD! I was actually thinking of contacting the studio who released it and asking if they will ever release it on DVD. Anyway if it is ever on cable, it is worth the 1 1/2 hours to spend with these crazy girls and have a fun trip around L.A like all you did in the 80s. Highly Recommended.
