A slight but not unenjoyable movie.
The film thinks it wants to be sincere, when all it truly wants is to be popular, just like the other kids' movies, so it sells off its originality.
It doesn't have a thought in its head and probably no notion of the corruption at its core.
As written by Michael Swerdlick and guided by Rash, the theme dissolves into a bland parody of pubescent pain.
Sadly, I feel the message of Can't Buy Me Love is more relevant than ever. Hopefully it shows young viewers that they can empower themselves if they're surrounded by adults who look the other way when they're being mistreated.
Teen comedy is dated but occasionally funny.
The story of a nerd who pays a perky cheerleader to date him so he will become popular is almost pornographic in its uninhibited, primitive display of the confusion and insecurity that roils like a tempest in the developing mind of the American teenager
One of my favourite guilty pleasures of the 80s!
At times this is a funny, touching film, but more often it isn't.
Standard '80s teen angst fodder.
Cute premise, cute leads, and Amanda Peterson? CUTE!
Okay teen comedy. Nothing special.
This movie has always been a favourite of mine. I realise it's not technically a *great* movie, but it is so 80's and has a great message about being true to yourself. It also shows the triviality of being popular in high school.
Amanda Peterson and Patrick Dempsey are perfectly cast. Amanda still looks beautiful in her 80's get up, even by today's standards.
There's also a very young Seth Green as the annoying little brother.
I remember this was one of the very first movies I ever rented, on VHS, back in the day. We weren't well off growing up, so I was 14 before we ever got a VHS recorder. Renting a movie was such a treat and I remember being so excited to see this. (Okay, sad childhood. Lol). I guess that also adds to my affection for this movie, but I think it really is a decent teen movie. Anyone who likes a good teen or 80's movie should enjoy it.
Silly, but that bring an old nostalgic feeling.
African Anteater Ritual...LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is a classic 80s comedy, and Patrick Dempsey was so cute in this and Amanda Peterson was adorable as well !!! :) Just great! An 80s classic! :) Love it! (:
I really liked this silly teen comedy, it's funny and cool. If you like 80s teen movies you should really check it out.
