I remember when this movie came out it was very well received. While I was too young to have seen it in the theater, I remember lots of kids my age having seen it once it was on HBO or VHS. I also remember that they played "wild thing" a whole lot more at the kids baseball games after that because everyone wanted to be "Wild Thing" Vaughn.
It was a funny movie and it helped push the careers of a number of people, while Charlie Sheen had already developed quite a name for himself, Wesley Snipes and Issac Hayes weren't as well known as far as actors were concerned. With another big name like Tom Berenger the line up became quite powerful.
I still try to catch this movie whenever I have a chance, although just like any other great comedy, I refuse to watch it on anything other than a pay-for cable station, because it really loses a lot when you have to see it fully censored.
The movie was great for its time, and it still gets a lot of laughs today.
