Greed, lust, dirty tricks and bloody fist fights... All those things that make life worth living. When Piper and Rick, the two hottest properties in the Battle of the Bands want to make it, only one thing stands in their way. They're from opposing High Schools. And Malibu High's 6'6" muscle-bound monster Godzilla is going to do everything and anything stop his sweet little sister getting it on with some jerk from the Coldwater Canyon High. When all else fails, only Lovelines answering service can keep them together.Written by
In the sequence where the GMC pickup is chasing the Laser, the red GMC badge is seen on the grille of the truck. Then it is seen covered with what looks to be silver duct tape, then the logo and then taped over again. See more »

"Lovelines" is another so-called raunchy teen "comedy". It seems to have a bigger budget than most, but this is wasted on interminable musical numbers (the movie is set around a battle of the bands) and a pointless car chase scene where some of the footage is obviously sped up.
There are only two sort of memorable aspects of it: Michael Winslow, the guy who did the sound effects from the Police Academy Movies (and the only actor who was in every movie!), makes an unexplained appearance as the operator of a telephone service, and a scene right at the beginning which supplies the movie's only real nudity involving a synchronised swimming team whose suits have been sabotaged. As usual in these things, the only nudity comes from extras who have obviously been paid just for that; they have no speaking role and disappear from the movie after the blink-and-you'll-miss-it flash.
The scenes with Winslow seem completely foreign to the rest of the movie. The Wikipedia article tells me that he runs a telephone service called "Lovelines" involved in keeping the movie's lovebirds together. The movie itself doesn't contain this information, but then, I didn't even know it was a love story. I couldn't tell you the names of the characters involved, or remember a single scene with them.
In short, I guess you have to conclude that "Lovelines" fails at everything it attempts. At least I came away thinking that Michael Winslow is talented.
