What a severe suede!
You guys, it's no big deal. Bobby sent it to me from Iowa. You know they have fine leathers down there.
Oh, yeah. The best leathers come from Rome, Paris, and Des Moines!

This is the best "wannabe popular" teen movie I've seen. Yes it's old, only a year after I was born, but it's still way cool to see the awful trends of the 80's :) It's about the typical "geek" wanting to be the "popluar" kid, who takes extreme measures to achieve his goal. It's not anything anyone hasn't seen before. Geek wants the girl, geek gets popular, geek drops his true friends, becomes a geek again, although the ending is really good! It's just so much fun to watch an 80's teen movie, there so great! It's also fun to see stars in earlier films. Who doesn't want to see Seth Green as a bratty younger brother? Good movie, watch it!
