Storyline

Winston Connelly wakes up in the middle of the night in an alley with no idea of how he got there. Nor does he know where in Los Angeles he is or why he is wearing a beat-up tuxedo. Through a series of flashbacks, he remembers that he was sidetracked on his way to the prom the night before. In the meantime, he has to figure out what happened to his wallet, his car keys, his date, and why a pimp named "Tito" wants him dead. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

9 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have to say that this must be my all time favourite movie! I mean come on! Everyone's saying it's awful but I've never laughed so much as when I saw it. Don't listen any negative comments about this movie - if you have a sense of humour at all then you will thoroughly enjoy this movie. Also, if you like Keanu as Ted in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure then you will be pleased to now that there's definitely some 'Theodore Logan' in Winston Connelly. And if you're a Keanu fan in general then you're in for a treat because he is undeniably cute as the nerdy Winston. Although relatively hard to find this movie is worth searching for. A must see!!!
