PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
When Keith goes out with Amanda, the girl of his dreams, Amanda's ex-boyfriend plans to get back at Keith. Meanwhile, Keith's best friend, tomboy Watts, realizes she has feelings for Keith.
Maddie Corman, like Elias Koteas, was discovered by John Hughes in New York City, and also suggested she'd be cast in this film.
I hate feeling ashamed. I hate where I'm from. I hate watching my friends get everything their hearts desire. I gave into that hatred and I turned on what I believed in. I didn't have to. You didn't.
Watts deliberately covers a star tattoo above her collar bone with makeup while getting ready to chauffeur Keith and Amanda, but when she's in the chauffeur outfit, the collar is high enough to hide the tattoo on its own.
UK theatrical version was cut (ca. 3 sec) to secure a 'PG' rating. Uncut version was released on video with a '15' rating. In 2002 the film was resubmitted to the BBFC and rated '12'.
