This early Ron Howard comedy has no shortage of laugh-out-loud moments thanks to Michael Keaton's unforgettable screen debut as manic wildman Bill Blazejowski.

Keaton's first major role marked him for stardom; and also added to Howard's newly forming directorial stature.

This is a halfway funny movie, one that's got loads of good gags in its first half and nothing but trouble in its second.

This isn't as snappily directed or as caustically conceived as the subsequent Risky Business, which has a similar theme, but it's arguably just as sexy and almost as funny.

Howard's first great film. Should have made Winkler a movie star, but alas....

Dated comedy offers very little in the chuckle department, with even less in narrative obstruction, but remains interesting only for the early work of now-famed director Ron Howard.
