This movie is typical 80's fun! A Classic!


This is a typical 80's comedy and I love it too! I miss films like this being made now!

Yes it is a blast all right! I totally loved watching this film! They do not make movies like this anymore!

Yeah, it was a fun movie. Fortunately all these films are on DVD/VHS or uploaded on the Internet for streaming. I don't think I've seen movies like this since the mid nineties.

Yes it was a fun movie to watch all right! Yes it is a good thing that they are on VHS and DVD along with being able to upload on the internet to watch. The last time I saw this movie on a major network was USA UP ALL NIGHT or USA Network back in the day because they would show films like this. I could even add TNT and TBS would also show films like this. If you go to USA UP ALL NIGHT there you will see why the major networks are destroying themselves and no one wants to watch what they put on because they put the same programming on every network and do not try to be like they once were which was different and set themselves apart from any other network.

Yup, I truly miss the age of screwball flicks. I grew up watching these kind of movies, they actually helped get through life.

I agree. It's not the best movie ever but it's still pretty fun and Mariska Hargitay is gorgeous

It is a classic film that I hope no one decides to remake. If they do want to remake the film my best suggestion is call it something else under a different title and then I shall pay to go see the film, but if the idiot calls it the same thing then I am not going to pay to go watch the movie.

I enjoyed it. Good fun.

Glad that you liked the movie. It is great to watch and a classic from the 80's.

Just to share a memory stemming from JOCKS, I watched it on Up All Night the night before I left for Reno, Nevada and it got me pumped to hit the slot machines and look for hot women. Well, I didn't do well in either department, but I really enjoyed going up to Reno in the later 80's nevertheless. JOCKS takes place in Las Vegas, but Reno has a similar environment, just smaller.

reply

COOL to hear that JOCKS had that much effect on you after you watched it on UAN. Sorry to hear that you did not win any money in skits or did not score with the ladies in the 90's there in Reno. Still is a great 80's flick to watch though.

reply

Yeah, my problem was i believed everything I watched on TV then, haha! These are fun movies, but they had me believe all you had to do to get laid was be around women, lol! Unfortunately, I got a reality check and realized you actually have to talk first :)

Yes you must converse with women in order to get anywhere with them. Plus, they have to have a since of trust with you also. Yes the 80's films were great to watch and I miss films like that being shown on TV.

I just completed my first film script called "THE POSSESSION OF INNOCENCE" and have a Facebook page up about the film for everyone to check out. If you would like to know what is going on then take the time to check it out. Thank you for your time, help, and support.

Agreed. Very amiable and enjoyable slice of vintage 80's silly teen comedy fluff.
