Warning: this movie has a serious tone problem and is not, in fact, your typical whacky 80s comedy with hijinks and such. Amazon does it no favors by playing the one scene out of that imagined 80s comedy, where the characters crash a dance at a country club, as the "preview", thus leading me to believe the entire movie would be along those lines. Was not prepared for the intense dread induced when Frankie has to get in the car with her drunk boyfriend while he cruises around with his buddies looking for his rival's dad to beat up.

Oh, also it is not in fact a good movie in any way.

Memorable for young James Spader and Robert Downey Jr., and Kim Richards' extremely crimped 80's hair.

A little too much Jack Mack and the Heart Attack for my liking but Spader’s performance is solid.
