I don't know what it is about this movie that makes me like it so much. It's pretty cheesy and predictable but than again I have a thing for cheesy, feel good, 80's comedies. To sum it up the movie is about a geeky boy named Arlo who has a crush on susie a wannabe cheerleader and with the help from his new friend Gus (A prince transformed into a frog) finds enough 'a confidents' to ask her to be his science fair partner and in exchange Arlo must find a way to get Gus kissed so he can turn back into a prince. This is a movie aimed at a young audience, I saw it first when I was 12, and the moral is basically don't judge people by their appearance or geekyness.
Shelley Duval is very funny in this movie which also features some other actors about to find success in hollywood; Elizabeth Berkly and Hal Sparks.
