Charming throwback to eighties teen comedies...
24 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pretty Cool is basically a homage to films like Weird Science and Zapped!, wrapped up in a parody of early Tom Cruise films, like Risky Business and Color of Money. It follows the adventures of a lovable loser who meets the girl of his dreams and then discovers he has to go to summer school and won't have time to try to get to know her. Deciding to break into the school's computer to change his grades (shades of WarGames there, another eighties classic), he inadvertently receives a transmission from a secret lab in Europe, giving him awesome mental powers.

Discovering he can read minds as well as control them, our hero has some juvenile fun at first, giving us some nice T&A. But his escapades threaten his relationship with his dream girl, and he's determined to win her without using his powers on her. Then there's the mysterious woman from the lab out to track down whoever has the power, her thought transference necklace, and a host of other complications. There's a lot going on in this movie, and while it doesn't all make sense necessarily, the movie isn't meant to be taken very seriously anyway.

Since the main character is basically a decent guy, most of the film's mischief comes from his unscrupulous best friend, who cackles maniacally at the prospect of all the fun to be had with the powers. He ends up in over his head a lot of the time, but it leads to some very funny situations. The film is basically a boy meets girl affair with some nice T&A and a good deal of slapstick humor. It's not the greatest story ever told by any stretch, but it's definitely better than average for the straight to video market. Worth a rental at the least.
