A nice Wholesome movie that should be a paragon to others
29 November 2003 | by frightnight1985See all my reviews

This movie is often overlooked by some for being too apple pie wholesome. but the movie did stand the test of its time. IT features 80s teen celebrities and the soundtrack is totally awesome. I haven't been able to find the song rock until you drop by sembello. It was also featured in a popular 80s movie monster squad but that soundtrack is hard to find and I don't think it has that song. So once again, we are back to square 1. The obscure 80s song that was not released on anything except maybe a soundtrack that is no longer extant. Also the characters were nice. this movie was made during the Reaganism reign in the late 80s. I highly advise those who did not grow up in the 80s to watch this one. back then, cellphones weren't things people had with them. Walk talkies though were around at that time. If this movie had implemented its teenage characters with cellphones I could imagine how the plot would have gone. being devoid of cellphones in the fun 80s is what makes this decade of teen films so unique because nowadays most films feature characters with cellphones but the 80s movies didn't. well this movie transcends all other teen films of late for originality and for having an excellent quality to it.
