1956. Obsessed with the hottest girl in class, a gawky high school student takes a crash course in teenage coolness from his motorcycle rebel neighbour, under the watchful eye of the eternal symbol of teenage rebellion: James Dean.

Christine (Phoebe Cates), a student at an exclusive all-girls private school, is in love with Jim, who attends an academy for boys nearby. Christine's arch rival Jordan also has her eye on Jim, and she is willing to do whatever she can to steal him away. Jim's uber-slob buddy Bubba is going with Betsy, Christine's cynical friend, though he would probably be unfaithful if any other woman were willing to get near him. Bubba and his pals sneak into the girls' school dressed in drag in hopes of reaching the Promised Land (better known as the women's shower room), while Christine and Jim run away together for the weekend, though their escapade isn't as romantic as they had hoped.Written by
During the seduction scene between Jordan (Betsy Russell) and Jim (Matthew Modine) in her bedroom there was a small scene shown only on the broadcast version where we see Jordan pulling the tie out of her ponytail and letting her hair down. See more »
This movie is all about Cates, and Russel, but there're good amount of flesh in between too.
The movie basically is about sexual interest the boys have in the girls that are in the same private school they're in. There're very little other plots to the story.
The movie basically revolves around Christine (Phoebe Cates), and Jordan (Betsy Russel). While Cates is severely limited in her range of emotions, Russel carries most of the interesting parts of the story.
For a movie that has almost no story to it, it's sure entertaining. The movie is basically a prototypical "cute" movies of the '80s, where raw power of the '70s started to take back seat to smaller social settings, and more charming behavior of the '80s.
The movie is certainly one of the classic teen movie of all times, and is still entertaining to watch. ≈
