About the Movie

Nowhere-man Ronny Miller is secretly in love with Cindy Mancini, the prettiest, most popular girl on campus. When Cindy finds herself in a desperate predicament, Ronny steps to save the day - for a price! Cindy must pose as Ronny's girl so that her popularity might rub off on him. But the road to popularity takes an unexpected twist when Ronny becomes so "cool" that his former friends feel the chill. Cindy is left totally out in the cold, and Ronny himself discovers that might buy you popularity, but it can't buy you love!

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film thinks it wants to be sincere, when all it truly wants is to be popular, just like the other kids' movies, so it sells off its originality. – Caryn James, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: As written by Michael Swerdlick and guided by Rash, the theme dissolves into a bland parody of pubescent pain. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Apr 26, 2004

Fresh: A slight but not unenjoyable movie. – Time Out, Aug 16, 2007

Love this movie. GOAT

I can word for word reenact this movie. Also is what made me move to the west from Brooklyn, NY. Finally added it to iTunes. They had all other 80's high school, teen dream, love, comedy movies but this one. Glad it's FINALLY HERE. Beats all those other 80's similar flicks.

My All-Time Favorite Movie

This is my favorite movie of all time. I don't think I have to say anything else.

You S#&t on my house!!!!

Love this movie. Easy to identify with the outsider longing to be popular at any cost. Predictable, as it follows a pretty simple narrative, I still really love this movie.
