Storyline

Woody's friend George has given him a couples ticket to the upcoming Hi-Teen Carnival at their high school. As such, Woody, who has always just hung out with friends in groups, contemplates asking a girl out on a date for the first time in his life, but being inexperienced, he doesn't know how to go about it or how to act on the date. He ponders who to ask. The prettiest girl or the most outgoing girl may not be the best choice, but rather the girl with who he thinks he would have the best time may be. His older brother Ed may be able to give Woody some pointers as his own examples of what he does from the time he talks to the intended to ask her out to the time he drops her off at the door after the date is over. Several specific events within that span are shown showing the wrong ways to handle the situation to one of the right ways. These situations include who to ask, how to ask her, if he needs to buy her a gift such as flowers, and what to do when he drops her off at the door ... Written by Huggo

Bad, but worth watching...
5 November 2005 | by (Iwate) – See all my reviews

...you know, the way "Jude Suss", "The Birth of a Nation" and "Hero" ( ;) ) are worth watching just to fully understand the evil motives that drove these people. Awfully conservative (none of Woody's dating options are black, Asian or in any other way different from the WASP norms of the time), but its corniness makes it good for a laugh. It's the kind of movie you should watch, but not pay for. Since it's a US "instructional" film, it's in the public domain, and quite easy to find on the Internet.

(It's also fun to watch it with friends and find lots of hidden messages and things that were probably deliberately planted in there to brainwash innocent students...)
