Greed, lust, dirty tricks and bloody fist fights... All those things that make life worth living. When Piper and Rick, the two hottest properties in the Battle of the Bands want to make it, only one thing stands in their way. They're from opposing High Schools. And Malibu High's 6'6" muscle-bound monster Godzilla is going to do everything and anything stop his sweet little sister getting it on with some jerk from the Coldwater Canyon High. When all else fails, only Lovelines answering service can keep them together.Written by
In the sequence where the GMC pickup is chasing the Laser, the red GMC badge is seen on the grille of the truck. Then it is seen covered with what looks to be silver duct tape, then the logo and then taped over again. See more »

Seeing Lovelines I have to wonder if any of these kids ever got into any kind of college. The students at both Coldwater Canyon and Malibu High Schools seem to have sex, practical jokes, and which school has the best band and not necessarily in that order.
In this rivalry there is a Romeo and Julet in the mix. Greg Bradford of Coldwater Canyon and Mary Beth Evans of Malibu are the lead singers in their respective bands. Evans has a Tybalt in the family in the person of Frank Zagarino a six foot six muscle bound jock who will dismember on sight anyone from Coldwater Canyon High showing any attention to his sister Evans.
There's not a whole lot of laughs in Romeo And Juliet and there are damn little else besides the music. It all gets kind of silly as do these teen pictures do. Incidentally the leads were both pushing 30, but that's hardly new for the big or small screen.
I note that Greg Bradford made only one more film and then had a considerable career behind the camera up to 10 years ago. If you had to typecast California blond surfing god than Bradford was your first choice. He had female and gay male fans all over the globe, wonder what he's doing now?
Nothing intellectually challenging about the film. The music isn't bad if not my particular taste. And it all ends a lot better for the Coldwater Canyon and Malibu High kids than it did for the Montagues and Capulets.
The Bard turns up in the strangest places.
