My favorite B-rated 80's T&A movie! I love it!
12 March 2006 | by ftpa1See all my reviews

This is totally my favorite B-rated T&A 80's movie! I STILL use some of the quotes from this movie...the "party grinds...still play twister!" line is classic! I can go on and on about the number of times I've just popped it in and watched it just to pass time. It was a cheap 80's tit-flick but hey, it was fun. I've actually used the "A rose? BUD?" on someone. Another classic line. Plus, look at all the people from this movie who went on to be stars! Joely Fisher...Patricia Arquette...even Tricia Leigh Fisher did some work after doing this one. I remember hearing a song of hers on the radio once. It didn't last long but it was there! I thoroughly enjoy this movie every time I watch it.
