Storyline

Scott starts work at a drive-in burger and ice cream restaurant when his paper route proves inadequate to raise the money he needs for a mail order karate course. He has determined that this course will help him gain the self-confidence he needs to get up the courage to call and ask Pam out to see a movie. Although at first just commenting on his mistakes, Becky, a co-worker, offers to help him make the crucial phone call. In the process Scott offers insights about how Joe is abusive in his relationship with Becky. Written by Brian Greenhalgh

Scott: Yeah I'm trying.

A Feel Good Highschool Movie
19 August 1999 | by (New England, United States) – See all my reviews

I'd be happy to be the second to comment on The Phone Call. Yes, I'm LDS and so I watched this several times in my Church Educational System classes. It seems to be so likeable because we (uh... I) can relate to the character's indominable fear of talking to girls. Extremely dated due to hair and clothes styles, but overall funny, corny, and happy. Best line in my opinion: "That's what I like about you... you're really very thorough." If you ever have the chance, just see it.
