A truly fun movie
19 December 1998 | by (Alabama) – See all my reviews

The 80's, wow, they gave us some pretty wacky stuff. Stuff like Michael Jackson as we now know him, the appreciation of music from any other time period, and the teen movie.

This movie is a teen movie. It's not supposed to be a complex mental thriller. It's a film to make you laugh . Not so much at its jokes, but the movie itself. Sure the plot isn't Oscar material. Maybe the acting isn't superb. But the movie is hilarious.

The whole plot is uproariously preposterous. The movie goes against a lot of teen-flick principles. The hero isn't very geeky. The nerdy girl waiting on the sidelines is quite attractive, and at one point the movie goes black and white for a Casablanca scene that still makes me giggle. The whole prune juice telekinesis thing is never made clear, but that's ok, because the zapped part in the title only comes up about 3 or 4 times.

This movie was made in 1990, but the early 90s were simply the last revels of the 80s. This movie is an 80s teen-flick. The jokes are 80s and the music is the 80s. But the 80s were funny.

I love this movie, it is a great flashback to a less stressful time, back when some crazy magic thingy would always save the day. Simply put, this movie is a great party movie, it features a really cute girl, Kelli Williams, and it's worth a rent.
