Stumbled upon this film on IFC channel last week. Don't expect too much from this movie, it's got the feel of Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael with Keanu Reeves as the Winona Ryder character, but it was better than I expected. Some spectacularly bad acting from Keanu, what else is new, but he's fresh-faced enough in a Bill and Ted sort of way that it doesn't become too annoying. The best scene would have to be when he crashes the prom with his biker/punk friends, who proceed to steal all the food and dip each other on the dance floor. A good movie for Keanu fans, or people who like offbeat 80s teen flicks.
