It's prom night and the kids of Hoover High will be having a night they will never forget. Popular girl Shelley ditches her prom and ends up spending the night with unpopular Dan; Popular guy Kevin goes out with nerdy Angela because he heard she was easy; Patrice continues to blame her boyfriend Roger for everything that doesn't go the way she wants it to. The adults also have their problems to contend with: Nancy and Larry must find out a way to patch up their marriage or get a divorce; Jack spends the night tracking down his son Dan to find out why he didn't go to the prom; and overprotective Ed and Ruth keep tabs on their daughter Angela throughout the night. —Pat McCurry <email@example.com>
A nice Wholesome movie that should be a paragon to others
This movie is often overlooked by some for being too apple pie wholesome. but the movie did stand the test of its time. IT features 80s teen celebrities and the soundtrack is totally awesome. I haven't been able to find the song rock until you drop by sembello. It was also featured in a popular 80s movie monster squad but that soundtrack is hard to find and I don't think it has that song. So once again, we are back to square 1. The obscure 80s song that was not released on anything except maybe a soundtrack that is no longer extant. Also the characters were nice. this movie was made during the Reaganism reign in the late 80s. I highly advise those who did not grow up in the 80s to watch this one. back then, cellphones weren't things people had with them. Walk talkies though were around at that time. If this movie had implemented its teenage characters with cellphones I could imagine how the plot would have gone. being devoid of cellphones in the fun 80s is what makes this decade of teen films so unique because nowadays most films feature characters with cellphones but the 80s movies didn't. well this movie transcends all other teen films of late for originality and for having an excellent quality to it.
