Storyline

College sophomore Randy Bodek is unfocused. The only thing he knows is that he loves his roommate, Jenny Gordon, who feels unappreciated as other things in his life seem to take precedence over her. He hasn't even told his parents, Diane and Joe Bodek, that he is living with a female, let alone a significant other. As such, Jenny breaks up with him at the end of the semester. While Randy is home during the summer break, Joe, against Diane's wishes, decides not to fund Randy's college education anymore as he is flunking all his classes, and hasn't yet declared a major. Not knowing what to do besides try to get back to college if only to be with Jenny, Randy gets a minimum wage job as a delivery guy at a pizza joint. During the course of his job, he meets Alex Barnett, a beautiful, older, sophisticated woman who likes pizzas with extra anchovies. To his surprise, she seduces him, after their sexual encounter which she gives him $200 to help him get back to college. Without telling him, ... Written by Huggo

Delivery Guy ... a his special service!
11 May 2006 | by sagyckSee all my reviews

"Loverboy" is so funny! This is a really good teen movie! I saw and buy the movie many years ago! Patrick Dempsey (Randy) was the Male-Molly Ringwald in teen movie for years! A lot of good actor work in this underrated movie: Carrie Fisher (Ex: Princess Leïa Ortega, Star Wars # IV,V,VI), Kirstie Alley (Look Who's Talking,...Too,...Now) she was so gorgeous in the blue leather dress, Kate Jackson (Charlie's Angels:The Series/Scarecrow & Mrs. King), Barbara Carrera (Ex: Angelica Nero, Dallas), Nancy Valen (A very beautiful actress who doesn't have her deserved career). Dempsey has chemistry with all the ladies... I like the finale of the movie at the Restaurant! With is father who discovered his son is not gay! Ladies goes to the police station for their Hubby. Honorable mention to Robert Picardo, Vic Trebak, Robert Ginty.

A feel good movie!
