Trivia

Most of the exterior scenes were filmed at Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. The administration agreed to allow the school to appear in the film only after 20th Century Fox modified it, changing the rating from R to PG. See more »

What Happened to Keri Green?
3 March 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

What ever happened to the adorable female co-star of this film? She's quite lovely in this film, but she seems to have disappeared. Anyway, this is a fun teenage comedy-romance that features Corey Haim, before he got annoying, in a role where he showed great potential as an actor. My guess, he didn't know Corey Feldman yet? Charlie Sheen mumbles his way through the role of the jock with a heart. Winona Ryder, Jeremy Piven, Courtney-Thorne Smith also co-star in this...a cute film.
