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
When Dora leaves the convenience store with one of Paul's old roommates heading to the party at the vet hospital, they pass a group of people dressed up like the characters from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show". See more »
Nobody mentions or even seems to notice the six-pack of beer that sits on Paul's lap throughout his meeting with Jay and his roommates. See more »
Hey, has anybody seen my toothbrush?
[from the other room]
You can't find it? Shit, you better find that thing, man. Those things can cost up to $2.50.
[also from the other room]
Yeah, and yours has such a nice handle, man.

I understand it's not the most amazing film ever shot, but it's one of my favorites anyway
I just love this movie. Just like another review on here said, to me it his kind of close to home. I've never been too lucky with the ladies this movie just seemed very personal to me. and while some i guess thought they weren't that great of a pair, i honestly loved the interaction between the two main characters. this is one of those "i really wish that kind of thing would happen to me" and it's a movie that i really enjoy watching to kind of "escape" for a little bit. i also think it is just overall a pretty good movie despite it's incredibly low rating. i think the three roommate characters are quite amusing, it has a lot of funny quotes and plot events, and a lot of the drama is good too. overall this is just in my opinion a very entertaining movie and it has a somewhat unique effect on me and will always be one of my favorites.
