Words fail me on how bad this actually was. However, if you are an 80's movies fan as I am, you will probably still enjoy picking all the 80's movies it rips off and looking at the fashions!

This Movie Is incredibly stupid. I mean, look at the cast. Can you expect much? But if you can turn your brain off and take the movie for what it is, you can actually have a decent time watching it.

Time for this to get an upgrade from 4 to 5 stars, because for me personally there are few comedies that make me laugh as much as 'Totally Awesome'. My favorite tribute to 80s movies! Although this was made for TV, I love it more with each viewing. It captures each cliche perfectly, tying in classics such as Foot Loose, Dirty Dancing, Karate Kid, Pretty In Pink, Some Kind Of Wonderful and so on. I love how each character is portrayed to a tee, even the score is brilliant and seems to come straight from that synthesized era! Viva the 80s!!!

Totally Awesome is my 54th favorite movie. It was an okay comedy, with the real comedy coming from Chris Kattan and Tracy Morgan. I didn't really like the main comedy and it definitely could have made fun of the 80's alot better. The real reason i added this movie to my favorite movies list is because of my alliance to Dominique Swain, who is my favorite actress.

In all fairness I only made it about 20 minutes into the movie.

As a HUGE fan of the 80's, there was a few funny parts for those of us who have seen Karate Kid and Footloose.

But, a bit much for me--for example the boob shot at the beginning? I guess thats making fun of 16 candles?

Chris Kattan & Tracy Morgan totally save this movie from being "made for TV" blah. They spoof a bunch of 80's movies mostly Karate Kid & Dirty Dancing and that is the funniest part of the plot. Trying to figure out what movie they are spoofing. "Peek-a-boo I'm'a Hump You"-Tracy Morgan's Character is hilarious! But mostly bad acting and senseless fun.

It was OK, some really funny parts and I kind of liked the way they made fun of some 80's movies but I doubt I would watch this one many more times in my life.

This was really stupid, but kinda funny at the same time. It could have been done better. But, hey...It was good enough.

I love Joey Kern... but this was not so good. Well, I guess since it's a made for TV movie, it's better than most.

The VH1 film [i]Totally Awesome[/i] is pure goofy fun. I enjoyed the hell out of this stupid, ridiculous comedy. There is no original plot to speak of, because we have a parody on our hands. Think [i]Scary Movie[/i] if it were made about all your favorite and least favorite 80s movies. This one should have been in theatres. I really enjoyed it. [b]*** (out of ****) B[/b]

I got this movie added so I think it's appropriate I'm writing the very first review.

Honestly, this is the greatest movie made by a music channel-- ever.

What a stupid ass movie. It is a 1980's movie spoof that does not work at all. Childish, dumb and barely entertaining at all. So predictable. Yet another waste of a movie.
