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

A guilty pleasure
16 October 2002 | by juanbuddhaSee all my reviews

While not doing anything particularly well, Loverboy won me over by the sheer lunacy of the plot. Guy breaks up with girl, needs money, delivers pizzas, becomes male hooker.... You get the point. It's so dumb that I love it. Patrick Dempsey is surprisingly good in this movie playing the naive, bumbling gigolo who stumbles into his new job. It's worth watching on cable.
