Trivia

The original director was Terry Winsor who had only one film to his credit, Party Party (1983). He was replaced by Paul Aaron who was so unhappy with the final film that he asked for the Alan Smithee credit. See more »

Goofs

When Morgan asks Emily on a date he agrees to pick her up, yet she never gives him her home address. She doesn't give him her phone number until later in the movie when she writes it on his hand, so he couldn't have called her to get the address before the first date. See more »

Quotes

Recommended for die hard Cryer fans.
11 April 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is simply an average (and sometimes hilarious) teen comedy that would probably be most appreciated by Jon Cryer fans.

Jon Cryer is Morgan Stewart, a funny guy with a love for classic horror movies. It's Thanksgiving break and once again, his parents, who have never really been around much, have let him down by calling to let him know that they've made other plans for the holiday. So, it's great news to Morgan that he's been invited home a few weeks later following a big prank. The invitation home isn't because he has been expelled or because he should expect to be in some serious trouble as it seems that his parents have totally ignored the incident altogether. In fact, his father's campaign manager (Paul Gleason), Jay Soto, recommended that spending time with Morgan, would raise interest in his father's Senatorial campaign.

But, Morgan finds that despite being home with his parents, they just can't seem to understand him, like when his mother thought all of his classic horror collection was pornography and tossed it in the trash or told him to stop trying to clean the house because it would give the appearance that they were poor. Morgan has even more difficulty when he meets a great girl with all the same interests as he has (she reminds me of the character Anna on "The O.C."). Then his parent's misconceptions cause trouble even there.

But the real story begins not with Morgan's difficulty in trying to get through to his oblivious parents, but when he catches on to a scandal involving his father's campaign manager attempt to steal from his family. Now, it's up to Morgan (with the help of his girlfriend) to either get his parents to wake up and look at what's going on or fix things for himself.

It delivers a few good laughs because Morgan's parents (Lynne Redgrave and Nicholas Pryor) are so out of touch. Plus, the scenes between Morgan and his girlfriend, Emily, are cute, too. But, I think the film can best be appreciated by fans of Jon Cryer.
