A teenager has to deal with his girlfriend dumping him among family crises, homicidal paper boys, and a rival skier.
Amanda Wyss (Beth) plays a character whose boyfriend is named Lane Meyer. In A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) her boyfriend's name was Rod Lane. So, one boyfriend's first name is the same as the other one's last.

I've been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I'm no dummy. I know high school girls.
[37:23]When they're opening Christmas presents, Mrs. Smith asks if they have Christmas in France. She squeezes her cheeks and says in a condescending way and says, "Christ...mas". At [1:11:47] Lane Meyer says, "you could make a nice friend. You know: Friennnnd" in the same condescending way. He just discovered that Monique speaks English so he could not have known that Mrs. Smith did the same thing.
The opening credits feature a cartoon - the animation style is the same that Lane draws in the cafeteria later on. John Cusack's character in Savage Steve Holland's One Crazy Summer is also an aspiring cartoonist who draws in the same style.
Network TV/HBO versions include two additional shots at the end of the film, one being a wide angle shot of the baseball stadium, and the other being a close up shot of Monique and Lane kissing together. Because of the deletion of these shots, the music and sound effects on the current video release are not synchronized with the picture.
