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.

Especially with all of that big name talent. As the synopsis states, "loaded with the typical formula, clichés, bad fashions, and stereotypical characters". It already been done a hundred times before, except those movies were funny back in that time.

This film tries way too hard to be funny, but the dialogue sucks and the characters are so assembly line created. I suppose you can't really blame the actors. After all, they can only go so far with bad writing. Honestly, there are ways to make a retro film fresh and engaging. This certainly is NOT a good example of that. Old ideas, old production tricks, old dialogue repackaged and regurgitated. If you are looking for this type of nostalgic comedy, then rent one from that era.

Sorry, but it's just not that funny. My friends and I have to ask, why spend all this time and money only to come up with a lame product. We don't hate it but we certainly don't like it either. It should have been a low budget indie. At least then you aren't expecting much. There are far better low budget films out there that are much funnier.

I do have to give a honourable mention to the wardrobe however. At least an honest effort was made there.
