This was like the first movie for stars like Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Alan Ruck, and John Cusack. The movie was kinda cheap, but the plot was cool, the lines made me laugh, and the actors were cute. This is just a fun movie to watch and you would wish that you could do the things that they did. 7.6 out of 10.
