"I first rented this video back in 87 or so and it became an instant classic with my friends and I. It is a typical guy movie with plenty of T&A, flatulence, and crude jokes to keep a guy entertained.
Rather then recap the entire story, I will highlight some of my favorite parts.
The strip poke game with Pondo was a classic.
The best guy scene in not only this movie but in all of these type of typical guy movies is with the beautiful Italian girl the the problems she experiences on her date with Pondo. His reaction is priceless.
I rented this movie so many times when friends stayed over that we knew the movie line by line. When the video store closed, it was lost forever (or so I thought). Thanks to Amazon, I now have a DVD copy which I'm sure will be a hit whenever my 40 something buddies are over and having a few drinks."

"i was delighted to see that this film has finally made it to DVD. in the crowded market for teen comedies, this little known gem stands head and shoulders above all others. forget things like American Pie and the sequels, this gets the "close to the bone" jokes right every time.
the plot? every teenage boys' dream : the quest to be come irresistable to women. does it succeed? oh yes!!
it has always amazed me that one hardly ever hears of anything that the cast and creators of this film did afterwards. there was certainly a high level of talent and ability on this film, a shame that there was no more from them.
if this being one of the funniest films of all time was not enough, then just wait until you hear the awesome, classic soundtrack - it captures the 80's feel in a way that not even my beloved Grosse Pointe Blank could!
It is supposed to be brainless fun

"I saw this movie when I was stationed in Germany in the late '80s. If you are hoping to learn a life lesson from this movie like another reviewer then don't buy it. This movie is purely an immature escape. There is nothing wrong with that and I can see there are a few people out there that could really use it.
Very funny movie with an outstanding sound track!"
