I absolutely loved this movie!!! it was funny and had a good plot! it stars Corey Haim as the main character with none other than Corey Feldman as his sidekick! this movie has lol! the story is about Les(Corey Haim) and he failed his driving test, which is a bad thing because he just got the date with the girl of his dreams, so he takes his grandfathers car and has the ride of his life, with some help from his friends (corey feldman). the girl ends up getting drunk and being asleep the whole time, so she doesnt know anything that has happened. one of the funnyest parts is when a drunk guy steals a bangs up the car and les' father finds out. i think everyone should rent it and watch it, its worth the money trust me!
