An interesting teen movie from the 80s, not one of the best, but it's not one of the worst either. I saw it on TV a while ago, and it was okay.

Playing for Keeps (1986) -- [4.0] -- Miramax moguls Bob and Harvey Weinstein directed and cowrote this uninspired teen comedy about three high school graduates who transform a dilapidated bed & breakfast into a hip & happening getaway for young people. It's like leftovers from half a dozen John Hughes and John Cusack movies.

One of my least favorite movies of all time. The story is horrible just like the actors. Daniel Penn looks like a guy with down syndrome. The only part I found interesting when I was a teen is the part where Marissa Tomei takes her top off for a split second to go skinny dipping. The soundtrack is attrocious with only two good songs that are only featured at the end during credits-Julian Lennon doing Stand By Me and Peter Frampton doing a great song written for the movie called Distant Drums.

Final Answer: Avoid like the plaque!

This movie could only be interesting to someone who is conducting an anthropological study of 1980s pop culture. Bad hair, bad soundtrack, bad lipstick, gratuitous shots of women's legs, bad over-acting, ludicrously tight pants, bad plot. It's just very bad.

Dated '80s film with good music and one of the first starring roles for Marisa Tomei. It's only worth watching for her first starring role in films, although she only showed off a miniscule of her amazing talents in this film that she would later showcase in MY COUSIN VINNY and her subsequent work after that. In fact, she was the only actor under the age of 25 in this film who has a career as an actor. The film's heart is in the right place- but it's a bad, ineffective movie- poorly written, not well acted and not well thought-out.

A good, forgotten film. Not quite as good as the likes of Ferris Bueller, Breakfast Club or Sixteen candles... but it's still a pretty fun watch.
