Ronald Miller is tired of being a nerd, and makes a deal with one of the most popular girls in school to help him break into the "cool" clique. He offers her a thousand dollars to pretend to be his girlfriend for a month. It succeeds, but he soon learns that the price of popularity may be higher than he expected.Written by

Iris has intimate scenes with all three of the popular guys: with Big John at the first party at his house, with Ricky at the school dance, and with Ronald at the New Year's Eve party at Big John's house. See more »
The airplane graveyard is located on Davis Monthan Air Force Base, and is under constant surveillance. Even a car stopped on the side of the road attracts military personnel. There are no dumpsters anywhere nearby. That scene was clearly filmed elsewhere in Tucson. See more »
What we have here is something I Just learned called the law of supply and demand. I shall supply you this remote control, but I'm going to demand, say, uh, two bucks.
Wrong! That is not how the economic theory works.
Look, I learned it in seventh grade, not Harvard.
Okay, let me give you the theory of relativity. Either you put on Bandstand now, or I have one less relative.

80's Entertainment At Its Best
I love those cheesy 80's teenage love stories. They are fun and entertaining. "Can't Buy Me Love" is one of the better ones for sure. It is one of those movies that you can watch over and over and still love it. The story is interesting and the performances are great. Amanda Peterson is fantastic as the high-priced yet emotionally repressed love interest of lawnboy Patrick Dempsey. The story is funny and moving and can even make you cry. Watch it with friends, watch it alone, watch it with someone you love and remember the pressures of high school and the friends that got you through it.
