a cute '80s movie
9 January 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

This is a story about three single girls(Cynthia Gibb of "Jack's Back", Virginia Madsen and Daphne Zuniga of "Melrose Place") looking for a good time. Somehow a geek(Clayton Ruhner of "Just One Of The Guys") gets thrown into their night and things start to fall apart. It's a good movie about friendship and acceptance. I don't think it anywhere near a classic, but good fun just the same. It's always nice to see these actors when they were young and starting out. Also looking back at the '80s and seeing all the big hair, wild clothes, and the music.

If you are looking for a fun film, look no futher than this one. Another fun film is "Just One Of The Guys". One of my favorites!
