One of my favorite 80's movies
4 April 2003 | by bihnerSee all my reviews

I remember vaguely seeing this movie in the early 80's when I was four or five years old. The only thing I recalled about the movie was the scavenger hunt that included a stop at the Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer brewery and the "Huge M" miniature golf course. I didn't even know the name of the movie until I saw Grease for the first time. When I saw Grease, I recognized Eddie Deezen as the same nerd in Midnight Madness. So by checking his bio, I learned the title of the movie. A long story short, I purchased the Midnight Madness DVD when it was released and I have not stopped laughing since. This is a must see movie for anyone in love with the 80's (Another great 80's movie is "The Secret to My Success", also with Michael J Fox)
