Anthony Michael Hall (the nerd from 16 Candles, the Breakfast Club and Weird Science) plays a football stud in this unrealistic, but awesomely 80's sports comedy. Great 80's supporting cast (Robert Downey Jr. and Uma Thurman among others). I loved this whern I saw it as a kid and it held up well laughs-wise all these years later. Not realistic. Goofy. Fun.

The adorkable nerd from "Weird Science" does a complete 180, and ironically, drops from hero to zero...Highlights: Awesomely bad 80s soundtrack. Think B-side of a "Miami Vice" record...if you're even old enough to know what any of that means. A fresh-faced Uma Thurman as the not-so-innocent girl next door. Anthony Michael Hall going shirtless in a purple and gold bolero jacket sporting rope chains and ankle boots...Lowlights: Unawesomely bad leisure suits. A loony-toons over-the-top frontyard football brawl. Robert Downey, Jr. constantly auditioning for a turn at the psych unit...The Rec: Even proven actors need to start somewhere, but I bet this one is missing from their resume.
