Storyline

Leon planned "The Great Allnighter" by picking college students to participate in his night long scavenger hunt. The five teams, each designated by colors: white (nerds who hate green), green (meat machine who hate red), red (sorority sisters who hate green), yellow (good guys who play fair), and blue (cheaters who hate yellow) are given clues to solve, leading them to the next clue site hidden in the city. Michael J. Fox plays Scott, the younger brother, in his movie debut. Written by Evan Shenkman <ejs15@cornell.edu>

Goofs

When Harold opens the garage door to reveal the Blue Team van, he pushes a garage door opener remote control. The door opens rapidly and irregularly, as if nudged by a stagehand and opened via spring action, not like the slow and steady operation of a garage door opener. No garage door opener mechanism is visible in the garage, despite the ceiling location where such a mechanism would be installed being visible. See more »

A rather silly little film you just may love
21 July 2006 | by rjlong65See all my reviews

A rather silly little film you just may love.

Although rather corny and cliché at times, it nonetheless works and makes for good clean fun. Five teams are engaged on a scavenger hunt and battle each other and their wits to win the all night contest - just for the sheer joy "knowing yours is the best team."

Notable for several screen debuts including David Naughton's first film role after his Dr. Pepper "Be a Pepper" commercials and before his major 1981 hit "American Werewolf in London". Also features Paul Ruebens in what I believe is his first Pee Wee Herman-esquire roll a year before he became known for it. And last but not least, Mr. Spin City and Alex Keaton himself, Michael J. Fox gets his first film role here. Fans will remember Stephen Furst as Flounder in Animal House. Outside of that, no names, but all funny characters.

Doubt it has ever made it to DVD, but there are still probably some VHS copies floating around and you might even catch on a late, late show sometime. If you do, is worth your watch. You may hate it, but it may also become a quirky little movie you come to love.
