Just entertaining
28 October 2001 | by davedimmerSee all my reviews

It might not be a classic, it might not be realistic, but it is certainly entertaining. This is just a good, fun film that I just keep watching!

Its a typical 80's teen college story, with stereotypical characters bursting from every seam. At times you cringe but unless you're looking for something deep and meaningful from the film or want to watch something "ground breaking" then just sit back and enjoy.
