Trivia

The original title of the movie was supposed to be "Cherry Pink", based on the song of the same name. However, when the producers wanted to buy the right to incorporate the song into the movie, they found that the price was too high. Thus the name and the song were dropped. See more »

Goofs

Lenny is sent to his Uncle's house in Queens for the summer. There is a scene in which Lenny and a friend are riding their bikes in the neighborhood and there is large suspension bridge in the back round, which looks like the Verrizano bridge, which was built in 1964. Since the movie takes place in the late fifties the bridge obviously was not built yet. Besides the Verrizano is in Brooklyn not Queens. See more »

Quotes

Polinsky: Has anyone ever told you about the birds and the bees?
Lenny: [sarcastically] Yeah, we learned about it in biology. Bees sting and birds crap on your head.

Quaint teenage angst.
1 January 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Although there have been countless films on teenage yearnings and lust, occasionally a little gem crops up. Just Looking is one such film, a gentle but frank script with the occasional comic one liners thrown in is a harmless and entertaining film with a feel good ending.
