Movie Info

This run-of-the-mill teen romantic comedy's main attraction is 22-year-old Demi Moore as Laura Victor, an aspiring rock singer. The slightly younger Jon Cryer is Charles Cummings, a dedicated photographer who meets Laura, falls in love, and decides that a dedication to furthering her career might further his own amorous designs.

Reveals a few new twists in the old lost art of initiation.

Utterly inconsequential, but it at least provides a nostalgic look at its stars circa 1984.

...often feels like a series of escapades loosely strung together by the two central characters.

Audience Reviews for No Small Affair


Actually quite like this sweet little movie. Jon Cryer was so likeable as a teen actor and it is just 80's overload with bad music and big hair on Demi.
Actually, the 80's ruined my life. Lol. Watching this sort of thing growing up, I thought I would hit a certain age and magically be this glamorous and live in one of these quirky, run down, but cool units 80's heroines always seemed to live in.
I am not a fan of Demi generally, but she does play this part well.
I also didn't realise a very young Jennifer Tilly is also in this one (bonus).

An okay romance movie, I want to see it again though, I saw it on TV a long time ago.

Possibly one of the cutest romantic comedies of the 80s. Jon Cryer is adorable as the 16 year old photographer trying to win over the heart of a 22 year old Demi Moore. If your looking for a good movie you should watch this!
