Indeed Totally Awesome

"What can I say? I actually loved this movie. It's surprising that a TV movie debuting on VH1 could actually make me laugh out loud. The films plot is just a bunch of 80's movie thrown into one, much like the film Not Another Teen Movie. What makes this film work is the great casting, writing and over the top performances. Bravo White Guy who did Chappelle's show.
A nice surprise

"Creators of embarassingly lame and un-funny spoof films like "Date Movie" and "Epic Movie" need to take notice. "Totally Awesome" might not be the funniest movie I've ever seen, (an honor still reserved for "Dumb and Dumber") but this movie succeeds as a far better spoof of its source material (the 80's) than either of those two movies combined. Instead of just loosely stitching together movie spoofs into a stupid and completely non-sensical plot (like the aforementioned duds), "Totally Awesome" is able to both spoof movies ("The Karate Kid", "Footloose", etc.) and weave them together into a decent story all its own. Even if you haven't seen many of the movies lampooned here, you should still have no problem enjoying the story as its presented. There's no punishment for those who aren't "in" on the joke, nor does the movie fall flat on its face without knowledge of the references. Let's see "Date Movie", "Epic Movie" or even "Scary Movie 4" make that claim. "Totally Awesome" is a funny and likable movie with a fair share of interesting and funny characters. Mikey Day is very charismatic as the likeable Charlie and Dominique Swain is completely hilarious with all her psychotic outbursts. (Seriously-these blow ups alone are worth the price of a rental!!) I'd like to see more movie spoofs done this way in the future and less like "Date Movie"."
Great all around 80's spoof...

"Dominique Swain steals the spotlight from the rest of the actors and she doesn't even know it. Her girl-next-door appeal and good looks make this movie a joy to watch. It's worth the rental fee just to see Dominique. She has a bright future as an actress.
Often-times intentionally annoying, over-acted and over the top, Totally Awesome! takes you back to the 80's by spoofing not only popular movies of the decade but clothing styles and anything and everything else you'll probably remember, and some things you've forgotten. It doesn't take its self seriously at all and you shouldn't take it seriously either. Just pop it in the DVD player and have fun with it."
