this movie is fun to watch, but mostly as a way to remember the fashions and styles of 1980s high school

Audience Reviews for Hiding Out


An enjoyable and highly amusing teen flick


Super Reviewer


Man, I LOVED Jon Cryer in this movie... perhaps even moreso than in "Pretty in Pink." Sick? Maybe.

Great disguise, Cryer -- EXACTLY the sort of look you want when you don't want to call attention to yourself.
