A Guide to Overprotective Parenting...
I had a feeling that this was a Made-for-TV movie, just judging by the opening credits in that TGIF kind of font. What we have here is a safe, amusing film about an overprotective dad who is so nervous about his 15 year-old daughter's first official date, that he follows her. Of course, you should expect unusual consequences given a plot like that. Something to make dad realize that he had totally overreacted.

Although the film is somewhat lackluster at points in both plot and humorous gags, it turns out to be an amusing little film. And one which oh-my-god the teenagers were not super-depressed or apathetic as many of today's teen productions are (i.e. the entire teen catalogue on the WB Network). Plus, an added bonus (and the reason I picked it up) is a small part by Pauley Shore as the clueless heavy metal kid at the school dance who thinks that his locker has been possessed by the Devil, whom he'll release, in exchange for turning the Vice Principal into a frog so he can dissect it in biology class. You also get to see Bull (from Nightcourt).

It's nothing more than a bit harmless fun and humor.
