The poor man's "American Graffiti," with the cast to prove it. If nothing else, it's impressive how well Pfeiffer recovered after this and "Grease 2." Worth a look for fans of the high school genre and of top 40 oldies, along anyone who thinks a premature ejaculation scene between Robert Wuhl and Fran Drescher in a car sounds like a good time. No one can accuse Floyd Mutrux of not being an eclectic director.
This movie was typical for its time but the characters ranked it up with Porky's for me. Tony Danza and Michelle Pfeiffer have decent bit parts but Robert Wuhl and Stuart Pankin steal the film and make it hilariously memorable. Used to be a regular tradition to catch this flick on HBO but nice to see it on DVD.
The Hollywood Knights incorporates the cream of the crop when it comes to killer rides, laugh till you cry pranks and gags, as well as a major stepping stone for many of Hollywoods now famous stars. If you ever hung out at the local drive-in with car hops & such you will love this movie.
Do you ignore Robert Wuhl, alias Neubaum Kirk, making out with Fran Drescher in back seat of car, with Frans classic line "NEUBAUM, DID YOU COME, OH MY GOD YOU CAME....." or something like that, in her voice, its hilarious. And Neubaum also, believe it or not, FARTS "VOLARE" (THE SONG) in front of the whole prom!! This is comic genius.
This a hilarious movie. Seen it at least a dozen times just for the fart scene in the gym and seeing Bimbo and his side kick get egged on and humiliated by the Knights. Anyone who takes this movie serious enough to write a bad review has issues ;-)
It makes for an entertaining romp with the buds. Though the film is pretty much the raunchier version of 'American Graffiti,' it does provide more than a few hearty/quotable laughs and good looking babes.
What a great stupid movie and I mean that in the best way. The lines/scenes in this are some of the most quoted among my circle of friends: Volare, the 1 arm violinist, Lawrence of Arabia, Turk did you cum, Dudley Laywicker, the punch bowl scene...This ain't Casablanca but it sure is funny as hell.
