Storyline

College sophomore Randy Bodek is unfocused. The only thing he knows is that he loves his roommate, Jenny Gordon, who feels unappreciated as other things in his life seem to take precedence over her. He hasn't even told his parents, Diane and Joe Bodek, that he is living with a female, let alone a significant other. As such, Jenny breaks up with him at the end of the semester. While Randy is home during the summer break, Joe, against Diane's wishes, decides not to fund Randy's college education anymore as he is flunking all his classes, and hasn't yet declared a major. Not knowing what to do besides try to get back to college if only to be with Jenny, Randy gets a minimum wage job as a delivery guy at a pizza joint. During the course of his job, he meets Alex Barnett, a beautiful, older, sophisticated woman who likes pizzas with extra anchovies. To his surprise, she seduces him, after their sexual encounter which she gives him $200 to help him get back to college. Without telling him, ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Alex Barnett: [seeing Randy rejected] For what it's worth, I thought she made a big mistake. It took a lot of nerve to go up to a complete stranger like that and ask her out. I admire that.
Randy Bodek: Thanks. I have to go kill myself now. Excuse me.

A very cute 80's movie
24 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. I thought it was very humorous and had a nice plot with many plot twists. Many well known actresses with cameo roles. I believe it's Lisa Kudrow playing Tony's girlfriend. Am I wrong? She is not credited. It may be her first role. Anyways, I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good 80's teenage sex movie in the vain of the Valley Girl, Better Off Dead and Fast Times.
