At the start of his senior year in high school, Morgan's father has lost his company, so the family moves from Connecticut, where they've been in the yacht club, to an apartment in the San Fernando Valley. Morgan has grown up in the shadow of his high-achieving older brother, and he seems to have a knack for getting into trouble. He also has a stubborn streak, so when he finds himself attracted to Frankie, the girlfriend of the leader of a local gang of youthful thugs, he can't stop himself from pushing her for a relationship. The thug thinks of Frankie as his property and sees the cool, urbane Morgan as dead meat. Is this a struggle to the death?Written by

In James Spader's first appearance in the film the patch on the back of his leather jacket is slashed with a car antenna. Although the patch is still slashed when he arrives at school the next day, it next appears fully intact later the same day at school while Spader is talking to Robert Downey, Jr. See more »

In the new DVD version (released March 2001), the song "Breakin' the Rules" is sung by Lene Lovich, as it was in the original theatrical version. However, on this same version, the credits mistakingly list the singer as Jonathan Elias, whose version was used in the first home video release of this film. See more »
A great rental. A perfect movie for anybody who went to high school in the 80's. The music, the styles or lack there of.
Kim Richards sadly disappeared after this movie. Too bad she was really good. She hasn't even shown up on a Lifetime movie yet.
James Spader disappeared too. I was expecting him to show up on some TNT movie about Microsoft.
By the way, Kim looked very good in this movie. Oddly enough, I found her more attractive towards the end, when wasn't wearing all of that garbage. She is a very beautiful woman with great hair. Nice legs and dance moves too.
