This is a feel-good movie with lots of laughs. A lot of energy, some "quirks" that kept you on your toes. I'm not up on the "teenaged" movies and so was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the actors, such as Micheal Copon -very professional. The Massachusetts accents were right on. The more well-seasoned actors, such as Ming Na, gave great performances of course. The authenticity of the '80's dress and music was superb! The dancing scenes were interspersed with awesome dancing and tricks (break dancing)as well as meant-to-be horrible hilarious dancing. The audience I saw it with was laughing quite loudly. I left smiling and knowing I enjoyed myself.
