5.0 out of 5 stars Brought back so many memories 16 July 2011
Classic dreadful 80's movie. But one I watched loads of times as a teenager. It was a fun trip down memory lane. It is your typical coming of age type movie. Enjoy it, but don't take it too seriously or you will see how bad it is!! It's just for fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves it. 30 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughter as she loves m j fox after I got her to watch back to the future, Not sure what it's about yet but my daughter has watched it over and over so it must be good. I will get around to watching it with her and add to this review as I know its not a review at the moment. If my daughter keeps putting it on it has to be worth 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars An 29 Aug 2002
By Molly P. - Published on
I'm amazed I'd never heard of this film before. I bought it because I love Michael J. Fox and it looked like a funny movie. I was very impressed by it! Even though it was obviously a TV movie (there are fades for commercials still intact) and it is pretty low budget in terms of any kind of stunts or special effects, it's really funny and sports a great cast. In addition to Fox, you've got Anthony Edwards, Crispin Glover, Jon Gries, and half a dozen more recognizable names. The movie itself is really funny. It's about a guy (Fox) who likes a girl (Nancy McKeon), but she's dating the self-proclaimed king of the school (Edwards). Edwards' character and his cronies really give Fox's character (and the other non-kings) a hard time. So it's up to the underdogs to prove that kings don't belong in high schools. It's a great movie about friendship and there's even a drag race for an added bit of high school movie fun. Despite its moments of cheesiness, this is a real treat and I'd definitely recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Once of the best teen tv-movies of the 80s 8 Jun 2000
By Pat McCurry - Published on
Back in the 1980s, NBC had the midas touch when it came to making TV movies with the top teen stars of the period. This was the first of many: High School USA. It's also amazing because at the time, the teens of the cast were top stars:
Michael J. Fox (Family Ties) Nancy McKeon (The Facts of Life) Todd Bridges (Diff'rent Strokes) Dana Plato (Diff'rent Strokes) Crystal Bernard (Happy Days) Lauri Hendler (Gimme a Break) Cathy Silvers (Happy Days)
Even some up and comers like Crispin Glover and Anthony Edwards have notable roles. This wasn't only an 80s teenfest. It features some of the teen actors of the 50s and 60s, all who made welcomed returns to acting through this film. It has a funny plot and entangles many subplots. If you are a fan of 80s teen flicks, then get this one. It's fun to watch.

By Barbara Villeneuve - Published on
I've been trying to find this movie for years! Another 80's classic, you'll be laughing all through the movie...."I'm getting my licence on Friday" is a classic line. This is a rare movie and a great classic to own.

2.0 out of 5 stars HIGH SCHOOL USA: Questionable on disc or tape 26 Mar 2010
By Annie Van Auken - Published on
It's very disappointing that the only home versions of the made-for-TVer HIGH SCHOOL USA (1983) are questionable ones. The VHS manufacturer, UNITED AMERICAN VIDEO, dubbed their product at SLP speed, the very slowest, and without HiFi audio. The few tapes I own from them have a crap picture, a bad hiss in the sound and major tracking problems.

As for the DVD outfit TRINITY HOME ENTERTAINMENT, their extensive catalog of skin flicks and slasher trash doesn't inspire me. After searching out reviews of their discs, I couldn't find anything specific to transfer quality, no raves or rants, yet I'm not prepared to plunge the necessary scratch to risk finding out if they are of better quality than UAE or not.

Is it fair to judge a home video outfit by their catalog? That's an individual choice. I gave this one a pass, for what it's worth.

I've never heard of this movie before. I liked Michael J. Fox from his Family Ties days. This looked like a funny and interesting movie to watch. Which it was by the way. I don't suggest buying this because this is not something you would watch more than once in my opinion. I think it would be better to rent it if you want to watch it. Still a good movie.
