A rich preppie hires a street wise loner to pose as him at an elite prep school. Judd Nielson is good in a hand tailored role and the film is better done than most 80's teen comedies. The score is good. It is overlong, however. Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
The end credits announced a sequel, but none has been made to date. Also the film is rated PG, according to its box, but should have been R-rated.
