Goofs

When Richard is in the kitchen talking to Doug, he speculates on what would happen if Katie met a duke or a prince in Europe. He says, "What about that Prince Charles guy?" To which Doug responds, "Prince Charles is married." However, both men's lips form the word "Andrew" instead of Charles. See more »

Quotes

Doug Simpson: [catching up with Katie] Who was that? Was that, that Joey kid? The kid with the flying saucer truck? I saw the earring. You couldn't make a date with your father, you had to sneak a boyfriend into.
Katie Simpson: Dad, when I broke a date with Joey he thought I was dating another guy, he followed me here. Men are so insecure!

Lots of fun
31 July 2001 | by (NS, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a really, really good movie.It's a great teen flick and it's enjoyable even if you're not a teen. There's no swearing in this movie;they only say b**ch once, that's it. There's no violence, there is however some sex-related talk. Except for that, it's a good clean movie. A great movie for fathers and daughters to watch together. Lots of very '80's hair, clothes,and music!Very funny, very cute, a good choice. I recommend it!
