Released just after Thanksgiving, the film had a dismal run at the box office and barely made over $250,000 dollars. However, it found a second life as a late-night staple on HBO, which was in the process of becoming a force in home cable. The movie was shown in such heavy rotation that watching it on HBO became a rite-of-passage for many adolescents in the late 1980s, leading to it developing a cult following. See more »

We're all great girls. Kelly might be prettier, but Margo, tell him which one of us is sexier.
You're ten points sexier. I'm... what?
No, six pionts sexier and she's ten points bitchier.

This was a pretty cool film!It managed to capture,what I thought,at least,the joy of being young,single,and looking for love in the eighties! The music is the real plus here!Depeche Mode's song,"But not tonight" fitted so nicely in this movie. Yes,how we loved our rock stars back then,eh? Following them around,hoping to get a glimpse of them and bathe in the magic that they poured out! Now,don't expect this movie to be deep and meaningful.No,it's not that at all,but just sit back and enjoy the ride! Remember the good ol'days of youth and laugh at those clothes and hairstyles!Ah!The 80's...miss them so much!
