One of the best films ever! A classic. The inspiration for knock-offs like GREASE.
3 January 2003 | by thughes-2See all my reviews

This film is a minor classic. A fantastic musical score and an incredible lead performance by P. David Ebersole (going by temporary stage name David Stewart) who should have been a teen superstar. Please put this out on DVD!!!!
