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.

Jokes not funny enough
30 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Ben Stein tells the audience that VH1 found a yet unreleased 1986 movie. Charlie (Mikey Day) and Lori (Dominique Swain) are brother and sister new to the school. Their family has just moved from Pittsburg to California. Lori aspires to dance but dancing has been outlawed in the town. Charlie is ranked last in popularity with outcast Billie (Nicki Clyne). On the other hand, Kimberly (Brittany Daniel) is ranked most popular. Gabriel (Chris Kattan) is the former dance instructor turned janitor.

It's a poorly made spoof. It's a bunch of skid ideas and underdeveloped concepts smashed together. It more miss than hit. Most of the ideas are just simply pointing out of something ridiculous without a joke to back it up. Dominique Swain is going crazy yelling and screaming which makes Mikey Day oddly quiet in comparison. Tracy Morgan has some of the funniest moments and is the best thing in the movie. In general,there aren't enough funny jokes.
