Underrated and Very Funny!, 2 June 2002
Author: ebert_jr from b'ville nj

One of several 80's comedies that are still fresh today, and one of my favorites. Patrick Dempsey (as Randy) showed some amazing talent in this film and played the role perfectly. I had forgotten the film was released in '89; it has the spirit of many of the films from earlier that decade but without much of the trashiness and better writing.
