What to say about this movie.... I absolutely loved it in the mid 80's and watched it last night and laughed the whole way through!
If you are not a fan of dick and fart jokes then skip this! I am however not a fan of dicks, but the jokes suit me just fine.

This is a do what you need to do to get the girl type movie. Paul Rodriguez play Barnie Bonaire and Michael O'keef plays the guy looking for love Jake! Two very male characters that go to charm school to fool everyone to think that they come from an elite backgraound to marry the girl, and save her school for the no where to go students.
If you like movies that are just plain funny and will make you laugh, I guarantee you will like this.
