Yeah, "business casual" here really means "no (blue) jeans".

By "got," do you mean "boinked"?

No, I mean in the pure, spiritual, soulful, romantic sense. Didn't the movie say that they never "went all the way"?

(What an odd little movie. So anti-sex for an 80s teensploitation flick. I still love it, though -- they got a lot of the details right.)

That's what I was thinking.

And I still have no idea what either of you are talking about.

IMO it's a classic. It made Sean Penn a star and has many memorable characters (like Mike Damone) and lines. "Forgot the magnetism of Robin Zander, or the charisma of Rick Nielsen?"

The screenplay is by Cameron Crowe, his first.

I didn't see it until a few years ago, but I can say for sure that it hasn't aged one iota. It's one of a select few teensploitation movies that is sympathetic to its characters. It's funny, clever and highly influential. Plus, it features Phoebe Cates.

Did the Disraeli Gears DE come out yesterday?

The director/writer commentary on the DVD is well worth hearing -- lots of stuff about the compromises between the movie they wanted to make and the movie Universal wanted to make (including with the soundtrack -- they apparently had to fight tooth and nail to open with something as "edgy" as the Go-Gos). I definitely agree with Rob that it treats it characters differently than most movies of its ilk -- they've all got at least two, if not three dimensions. (Well, except Spicoli, but that's on purpose...)

Wasn't Spicoli something of a blueprint for the Bill & Ted type characters of the world? I don't remember anything like him before that in the movies, but I could be wrong.

I'm sure you could find "stoned surfer dude" characters before Spicoli, but he was probably the first superstar of the genre.

Spicoli is sort of an update of the 'beatnik' characters from the 60's...maybe Maynard G. Krebs for the 80's.

Anyone rememebr Foster Brooks? He used to make a living impersonating an alcoholic on Carson and other
variety shows your parent used to watch.
