A spoof of typical 1980's teen movies. The idea is that VH1 found a "long-lost", never-released teen film made in the 1980's and decided to air it now in 2006; thus it is loaded with the typical formula, clichés, bad fashions, and stereotypical characters found in those movies and makes fun of them.

If it wasn't cliché, I'd say "Totally Awesome" is Totally Awesome!
7 November 2006 | by liono86See all my reviews

I was born in 1986, so, yeah, I wasn't old enough to be a part of everything like some of you guys were, but, as I did get older, I did rent or watch all the 80's movies on TV. I also love 80's music and own a bunch of 80's cd's and listen to 80's weekend on 94.3 OK, now to the movie. I loved it. Was there things that were miss? Yes. Was there things that were hit? Most definitely. More than there were miss. The only things I didn't like about the movie was the character of Max. The movie would have held better without him as he wasn't needed at all and wasn't funny. The second thing was the soundtrack. They played awesome 80's songs, but, there were only like 7 80's songs in the film. I felt like they could have used a good 15-20 songs from the 80's and it would have made a great Totally Awesome soundtrack to buy on cd. Other than that, for the songs they did use, it was awesome. The styles were also quite awesome. And, the spoofs were just hilarious. The TV spots didn't do the movie justice as it was way funny. I bought the DVD on the day it came out, which was today. And, it's unrated, and, for a TV movie, the DVD isn't vanilla at all. There looks to be some decent special features, though, I have yet to watch them. So, be sure to at least rent and watch this movie if you haven't seen it on VH1 yet, because, you'll love it if you're a child of the 80's or before. Heck, I'm sure you'll want to buy the DVD even.
