During a scene where Johnny (Anthony Michael Hall) is drumming, you can clearly see a Charlie Chaplin poster. Robert Downey, Jr. (Leo Wiggins) played Chaplin in Chaplin (1992). See more »
When Johnny is playing the drums during the credits, the Charlie Chaplin image on the poster in the background starts out looking to the right and Johnny's hi-hat cymbal is on the left. During subsequent shots back to this scene, the poster and the hi-hat cymbal reverse position several times (i.e., the image in the poster looks to the left then to the right, the hi-hat cymbal appears on the right and then on the left.).

Not the best movie I've ever seen but a good coming of age comedy. Repeat comedy. Some people might not like this movie but I thought it was good. If you like movies in general and can deal or like the 1980's and early 1990's era movies you'll enjoy this.
If you like the Breakfast Club or any of the Brat Pack era movies you'll like this. It also has some good football scenes but only a few short ones so those that hate football can manage through them.
Basically this movie is about college recruiting of a star high school football quarterback. He struggles with the moral question of does he go to the flashy money schools or the one where he might get an education. In the mean time his family, coach and friends all fall victim to college recruiters.
Not a good movie for young children due to sexual overtones, drinking, etc. Men and women should both enjoy this movie.
My favorite scene is early in the movie with Johnny in his room playing the drums with the TV and stereo going. I could really relate to this scene from my high school years. I measure movies by the question of, would I be disappointed if I had paid $10 to see it at the movie theater. This one exceeds the grade. Enjoy.
