Storyline

Winston Connelly wakes up in the middle of the night in an alley with no idea of how he got there. Nor does he know where in Los Angeles he is or why he is wearing a beat-up tuxedo. Through a series of flashbacks, he remembers that he was sidetracked on his way to the prom the night before. In the meantime, he has to figure out what happened to his wallet, his car keys, his date, and why a pimp named "Tito" wants him dead. Written by Christine Sai-Halasz <sai@mit.edu>

Nice 80's movie!!!!! A must watch for 80's and movie lovers!!!!
15 July 2014 | by midiancorreaSee all my reviews

Really nice movie guys, it starts strange then unfold into this funny; but interesting story, on how he got there? Lori is stunning just as in her other movies and Keanu adds that spice to make it all a awesome movie. The plot is good Keanu suffers in the movie but just when I taught he wouldn't stay with the girl... whoops she turns out to like all the crazy mix up that has been going on. She thinks she was kidnapped??? After knowing the truth, her idea towards her hero changes radically; but then in the midst of that he becomes a hero again and well ends up with the stunning girl.

I been watching some 80's movies lately I didn't taught this one would be as good as the rest turns out I ended up watching this movies with a thumbs up. I am a picky person but this movie nails it I love it!!!
