Pretty Good, 7 January 2013
Author: ebiros2 from United States

For what's supposed to be a low budget movie, this movie really rocks. It's got just the right amount of humor, skin, and romance.

I love these late '80s to mid '90s college/high school themed romantic comedies. The girls for some reason are lot better looking than the girls you see in B movie these days. In this movie, all the girls are good looking.

I don't know what makes these movies so charming, but the characters are cute, and acting is very decent. I remember these movies from USA Up All Night days. It's hard to describe what makes this movie work, but if you see it, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Sweet movie that's really worth a watch.
