The character played by Annabeth Gish, Ryan, writes a paper which criticizes the presidency of Richard Nixon. Less than a decade later in Nixon (1995), Gish played Julie Nixon Eisenhower, daughter of Richard Nixon, who, as it turns out, offers to publicly defend her father from the very things described in Ryan's paper.

Wall Street stock broker (Jon Cryer), set to testify against a mob boss, is nearly killed by a hit-man. He escapes and runs off to hide with relatives, where he changes his appearance and passes himself off as a high school student.
Silly but enjoyable comedy. One of Cryer's better starring roles. Supporting cast is good. Pretty Annabeth Gish is the jailbait love interest. Nice soundtrack, too. My favorite part is the bit character Shawn, a troublesome high school student who tells the principal "Go ahead and call my parents, dude. I didn't do sh*t." I laughed hard at this guy because he reminded me of so many losers I went to school with.
