The quintessential 80's flick
23 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was running on TNT for it's '80's night.' Great cameos in this flick from Tony Geary as a homeless guy living in a box on Venice beach, to Harry Perry, the skating Sufi from Venice - David Leisure as an unctuous boss, Christy Mcnichol as a performance artist.. not to mention Charles Grodin as a condom pushing father. This flick still runs on Comedy Central and it always makes me laugh out loud. Especially Bridget Fonda's boss who runs the dating service. UPDATED JULY 2009. Just watched it again courtesy of TV Guide's channel with all the nonsense running underneath. Still makes me laugh. Lu Leonard is hilarious as the owner of the dating service (she passed away a couple of years back.) This film was 20 years ahead of its time.
