Critic Reviews for Making the Grade
The filmmakers had studied other teen comedies, but not closely enough to pick up any real feeling for their subjects.
Audience Reviews for Making the Grade
I SERIOUSLY LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! JUDD NELSON IS A GREAT ACTOR,ANDTHIS MOVIE IS SO FUNNY. I LOVE AT THE END HOW EDDIE CONFESSES WHO HE REALLY IS AND TRACY TAKES HIM BACK. CLASSIC '80S MOVIE!!!!
Rich jagoff hires poor jagoff to go to prep school for him. The obligatory 80's break dance scene has to be the worst cut together pieces of garbage in cinema history w/ Judd Nelson just making stupid faces and moving his head. Total shit. The only reason to watch this is the stellar performance by Dice.
This movie uses the story of the Prince and the Pauper and applies it to a lazy rich college student and a street smart high school drop out. I think that was a cool idea, even though the end is predictable, and this movie has a lot of funny scenes, I really liked it.
