Reviews

Variety Staff Variety | July 24, 2007

For a change, there aren't any cartoon problem adults on hand as there often are in these pictures.

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | October 23, 2004

This movie is a little treasure, a funny, sexy, appealing story of a Valley Girl's heartbreaking decision: Should she stick with her boring jock boyfriend, or take a chance on a punk from Hollywood?

Dave Kehr Chicago Reader | January 01, 2000

Director Martha Coolidge turned a short-lived fad into a genuine sleeper, an exploitation film that thoroughly transcends its origins to become a highly appealing romantic comedy.
