Cute and campy film
25 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect to like this film and ended up loving it. It was campy but it was meant to be fun and campy. All the actors were perfect and it was a joy to see Paul Rudd in one of his first films. The girls were perfect and we rooted for them, even with them stealing cars and getting into trouble. Julie Bowen was fun as the sexy trouble maker of the group. Holly Fields was fantastic as the goody two shoes but wants to be a bad girl, who gets into trouble. Jenny Lewis was great as usual. I wish she'd go back to acting. She and Holly have singing careers now. Every actor in this was perfectly cast. John Astin was a great surprise and we loved his character. I would have loved to see more of him in this. So many unexpected likable surprises in this film. A huge surprise to see Rodger Corman and Julie Corman in this. Well done Joe Dante.
