Storyline

Kim's mother believes being a debutantee should be the most important thing in a young woman's live. So she makes a big fuss about it and gets on Kim's nerves. Consequently, and because she thinks he's an asshole, Kim refuses to go with her mother's choice: prestigious Scott, a senator's son. She asks out a guy she hardly knows and who - worse for her mother - is Latino. Her mother and Scott try anything to prevent her from this "social suicide". Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Kind of dumb, kind of fun!
15 August 2003 | by dislilplayab19See all my reviews

Kind of dumb, kind of fun! Take a piece of almost every 80's teen movie (whether or not it was intended?!), slap it together and you got the early 1990's `Primadonnas.' Originally titled `Social Suicide.' The classic debutante girl likes the guy from the other side of the tracks (in this case border), ala any early John Hughes pic., but snob mom won't have anything to do with him is the storyline. Then throw in some `Porky's' humor, a moment from `Mannequin' and a dab of `Valley Girl.' With uneven direction and a script, which isn't sure to be (or as good as) `Pretty in Pink' or `Porky's' and production quality which varies from fair to very good from scene to scene. You have a B-film that is kind of dumb but, admittedly, kind of fun. The acting is standard. With the male lead played by Peter Anthony Elliott, standing out. Very handsome and likable. Soap gal Shannon Sturges, in one of her first jobs, is very pretty and young. If you can find this one. Give it a look on a lazy Saturday afternoon. This one could become a cult classic! *Note - The dog scene toward the end, which comes out of nowhere, is outrageous!!
