I very glad i own this gem
10 November 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was in a video clearance center about 3 months ago, and found ZITS new on VHS, as well as some other golden oldies.

Thius movie centers the lives of a group of 13 year old kids, who feel very sorry for there music Teacher, As she was mug'd, and beaten over the head, which caused her to be blind, And there is nothing she can do, as she doesn't have the money for her opp-oration. So the kids decide to earn the money themselves, and become Spy's and draw up a supposedly "secret aircraft" copied from a toy design.

They end up selling the plans to the Russian's, and what follows is just one laugh after another.

One thing that i was so surprised with this film is how the young kids talk, they talk about sex, masturbation, pubic hair and heaps more stuff you just don't expect from a movie made back in 1988, actually, you prob wouldn't find a film to date with that kind of full on talking from kid. 7 out of 10

good young actors
