The energetic star, Tom Hanks, went on to better things. The first half hour is reasonably funny, but after that invention gives way to meretriciousness and sub-adolescent caperings.


Too contrived to capture the craziness it strains for and ultimately becomes offensive rather than funny. Filled with cartoon caricatures instead of people.


The usual teen nerd sex comedy. Only his (Hanks) presence makes it bearable.

(Simon Rose, Essential Film Guide, 1993)

Crude exploitative farce.
