The film heavily features the music of Melissa Manchester, as Clarke (Jeremy Dozier) is a big fan. The song "Rainbird" was actually co-written by Manchester and Mary Steenburgen, who plays Clarke's mother. See more »
The movie is supposedly set in 1987, but the cash the lead character is shown stealing in the trailer ($10 and $5 bills) is clearly modern U.S. currency featuring enhanced security features like large numbers and different colored inks - not bills from the 1980s. See more »
I've heard it said, this here's a man's world. And some girls believe it - primping and fussing and hoping a boy will look her way. If it's a man's world, God wouldn't have made *me*.

Abe Sylvia wrote and directed a wonderful movie about growing up that makes the entire audience cheer, laugh and cry. He does this trough magical chemistry between both lead characters, great plot development and really smart humor. This is one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. I highly recommend it to anyone that has a witty sense of humor! All I can say is that this movie is for those with a high IQ!
As for those posting about the hair/makeup/costumes, clearly you have no sense of humor and have never opened a 1987 Norman High School Yearbook. The movie is set in 1987 Norman Oklahoma not Los Angeles. Everyone looked like that, even if you don't want to remember yourself that way!
