Trivia

During the beginning of the film, Jonathan Brandis' character Matthew calls Rodney Dangerfield's character Chester, "Chesterfield." Jonathan had a habit in real-life of referring to certain friends in jest by adding "field" to the end of their names. It is rumored by some who knew him that he carried this over into the film and ad-libbed "Chesterfield" as an inside joke. See more »

Goofs

Chester is talking to Matthew from the van and Matthew is holding a football. A teacher asks Matthew if he is all right and we see Matthew holding his backpack and not the football. Earlier, Matthew left his backpack with his friend, who threw him the football. See more »

Quotes

Chester: My name is Chester, I'm great, I'm wonderful! Everybody likes me!
Redneck: Hey, Chester. My name's Harland, and to me you look like a giant asshole.
Chester: Well, if I'm an asshole there's a reason for it. You're contagious!

Dangerfield's foray into the teen comedy market
6 December 2012 | by Whitetd12000See all my reviews

Rodney Dangerfield had at this point become known for playing sympathetic losers who go to outrageous lengths to climb the ladder of success. Here he is Chester Lee, a salesman with an understanding fiancée and a typical apathetic stepson. While trying to get a promotion, he somehow gets himself into coaching his bosses' championship soccer team, The Ladybugs. He accepts, merely on hearing the team's legacy. He soon finds out that all but one of the players is new to the team and know even less than he does. He then enlists the help of his stepson, a gifted soccer player, having him pose as a girl. The film is funny enough, as Dangerfield's wit carries it through. The b plot of the stepson's crush, who is also the bosses daughter,r is thrown in for teen appeal. This movie does not pretend to be anything more than a harmless farce, and is all the better for it.
