The plot stinks - but John Cusack is always worth watching!
While this is undoubtedly the worst of John Cusack's teen comedys, he still manages to lift the film above most other '80's films of the same genre through his sheer screen presence (despite a truly terribly haircut).
The script is uninspired and nonsensical but inoffensive & there are a couple of good moments, particularly the "That's democracy!" scene on the plane which stand out above the rest.
