Movie Info

This entertaining teen comedy is set in the effervescent 1950s and involves the friendship of the introverted, clumsy Jonathan (Doug McKeon) and the nonconformist, extroverted Gene (Chris Nash). Jonathan's main objective is to win over the sexy Marilyn (Kelly Preston), in spite of his shyness, while Gene has his own love-life to maintain with his girlfriend Bunny (Catherine Mary Stewart) -- as well as counseling Jonathan on how to attract women. Gene also has to defend himself against Kenny

...Mischief's characters are likeable and engaging enough to ensure that the movie's raunchier moments feel organic.

An unremarkable exploration of adolescence.

Nothing new on the narrative front, but Damski's approach to the mid-50's feel (and the extensive usage of popular songs from the era) helps to keep this amiable comedy afloat.

Audience Reviews for Mischief

I really liked this movie, the plot is a simple romantic comedy, but it has all the charm and rebelliousness of a 50s teen flick combined with the fun and sexiness of an 80s teen film. Plus, it has a more realistic look at teen romance than other movies of the time, I think. Overall, it's a good movie, and I'd recommend it.
