Is there room in Manhattan for a decent kid? Can a young woman see past a cad to true love? Paul, from rural upstate, comes to New York City for college. To keep his scholarship, he must study hard and do well. That makes him a loser to his partying roommates who connive to kick him out of their suite. He's assigned a room in an animal hospital. In class he meets Dora, a pretty coed who needs a job to pay for school, and who's the very young lover of their sarcastic and selfish lit professor. When Dora is slipped some drugs at a party, Paul nurses her back to health, and a friendship follows. For Paul, though, it's more than friendly feelings. Can they work things out for them to become a truly lucky couple?Written by
In a February 2017 feature at The Ringer that interviewed Amy Heckerling and wrote about her entire career, Heckerling said that the main reason this film failed is that the studio insisted it be delivered as a PG-13 film even though it was intended by everyone else, from Heckerling to the since-departed studio executives who'd greenlit production, as an R-rated comedy. The studio said that R-rated comedies weren't welcomed by enough audiences and forced the film to be watered down considerably. Heckerling said the movie failed because audiences could tell it was not doing what it was intended to do. See more »
When Paul is approached by Noah who shows him the party drugs, Paul pretends to put them back in Noah's pocket to hide them from onlookers. Instead of doing so he goes to hide them up his sleeve so he can throw them away. When Noah leaves, he pulls the drugs from out of his sleeve. But before this, when he does the motion to put the drugs up his sleeve, his hand is clearly empty-with no sign of the drugs. See more »

Paul, Adam, Chris, Noah - they're all my little honor students, but they couldn't get through a copy of Rolling Stone between the four of them.

even bfor i saw this movie i was expecting an enjoyable watch, and was not surprised at the least,when i got one. with a really good cast of unkowns and a good main character played by american pies Jason Biggs, who holds the part of good hearted and kind LOSER who ain't used to the life in a city.
good thing bout this film is that it ain't a stupid slapstick film, its good comedy that manages to be pulled out of serious situations that are probly undergone by a rather large population of the college student era, i'm getting at drugs,parties and relations etc. worse thing bout it though is that it wasn't released at the cinemas in the uk and so was missed by a large amount of the public even with the famous Wheatus release.
anyways, rent this one cause its well worth the watch and if u'r a bit of a movie buff theres a cameo part by comedian DAvid Spade, but its only a tiny part that he ain't even credited for. have a good one ad bye for now.
