Storyline

A spoof of typical 1980's teen movies. The idea is that VH1 found a "long-lost", never-released teen film made in the 1980's and decided to air it now in 2006; thus it is loaded with the typical formula, clichés, bad fashions, and stereotypical characters found in those movies and makes fun of them.

If you love the 80's, you'll love this movie
5 November 2006 | by (AZ, United States) – See all my reviews

I will warn you ahead of time ... if you're looking a good plot line or great characters, this is NOT the movie for you; but then again, plot lines were TOTALLY "OUT" in the 80's.

This movie is a good mix of kitschy fun mixed with 2 great ex-SNL-ers that totally made it worth the watch (I wish I had Chris Kattan's moves ... hahaha)...and Tracy Morgan ... c'mon THINK about it ... have YOU ever broken a Puerto Rican's arm for sweat pants money??? I know I haven't ... yet.

This movie even touches on some lesser-known flicks (see if you can catch ALL the references the first time through!)It's TOTALLY AWESOME in such a TOTALLY bad way! Like, for sure!
