Les (Corey Haim) is embarrassed when he fails his driving test in this routine teen comedy. His buddies are depending on him to provide the wheels for the weekend, but Les is more interested in his Saturday date with Mercedes (Heather Graham). Les secretly steals his grandfather's immaculate 1972 Cadillac for the adventure. The dream date soon turns into a nightmare when Dean (Corey Feldman) bothers Les with camera flashes and cigar smoke, and his sloppy-drunk date dances on the hood of the car

Everything you've ever hated about American teenagers, their music, money, fashion sense, their values, and most of all their pin-ups, in one auto-destructive movie.
Anyone old enough to have a license is probably much too old to be amused by License to Drive.
Up until about the halfway mark of this movie, I was having a very good time. Then, somehow, it ran out of energy.
About all that's worth noting is that the Caddy gets demolished and that the stars remain intact (though practically everyone will wish that it were the other way around).
Although the premise of getting or not getting a first driver's license is a solid-enough base for 90 minutes of teenage comedy, License To Drive misses the point on all counts.
...as a breezy, mindless little comedy, License to Drive undoubtedly fits the bill.
One of the best teen comedies ever made....an absolute blast!
It's got the two Coreys...need I say more?
It's the two Coreys at the height of their popularity; make sure your children avert their eyes... by gouging them out if necessary.
I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I liked this movie. The Coreys were actually funny in this one.
