1987 was a good year. I remember it fondly as the year that I graduated high school (thank god). The 80's overall were great for a variety of reasons, but I really love the movies and the music!
Can't Buy Me Love is a surprisingly watchable movie that has a positive message. It's definitely worth watching more than once, and there's no doubt it will put a smile on your face.
Boy goes from geek to chic and back again. Patrick Dempsey and Amanda Peterson were really cute together. Boy gets the girl and an HEA!! And a really young Seth Green.
The big 80's hair and very bad fashion! Is it the spotlight dance? No, it's the African anteater ritual! Very bad dance moves, but SO funny!
If this were a book:
I would definitely read it, mostly because of the 80's setting.
Obviously, I decided to review Can't Buy Me Love after I learned about the passing of Amanda Peterson last week.
