The First Time Seems Like The Worst Time, But It's The One Time You'll Never Forget! Nelsonville, Ohio, 1956: Eisenhower is President, Rock & Roll is new and Jonathan (Doug McKeon) is a shy, clumsy high school senior obsessed with sex. But when a motorcycle-riding rebel (Chris Nash) moves in next door, Jonathan begins to learn about looking cool, acting tough, and maybe even "going all the way" with the gorgeous girl of his dreams (Kelly Preston, in what Mr. Skin calls "One Of Top Ten Celebrity Nude Scenes Of All Time"). Welcome to a notso- innocent time of drive-ins and chicken runs, backseat fumbling and forbidden love, and the moment in every teen's life when small town dreams collide with big-time MISCHIEF. Catherine Mary Stewart, Jami Gertz and Terry O'Quinn co-star in this fun and daring coming-of-age comedy that features a hot soundtrack of hits by Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Fats Domino, Gene Vincent, Little Richard and more!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Film's Title Is Very Apt 14 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a good movie. It tries to tell a story about these young people and does well. It leaves you kind of attached to the main characters and wondering what happens to them after the movie ends. Or at lease it did for me. It's not a blockbuster, but worth watching if it interests you. In fact the main character is a little dangerous, pushing the boundaries of consent somewhat.

A teen movie in a class of its own. Good story line including a cameraman that should have won an Oscar. Kelly Preston was right up there.

4.0 out of 5 stars A personal favorite 28 Sep 2001
By Jeffrey Ellis - Published on
This isn't a great film but its still one of my personal favorites. Basically, this storyline is familiar from anyone who saw any teen films in the mid-80s. Likeable but nerdy boy falls for the school beauty and, with the help of a much cooler James Dean type, pursues her against tremendous odds (well, against her football player boyfriend anyway) and in the end, discovers that beauty is only skin deep. However, this film manages to take that basic concept and actually liven it up with a sharp script, breezy direction that keeps the story moving, and finally some really winning performances, especially from Doug McKeon (the likeable geek in question who is hardly portrayed as an angel here), Catherine Mary Stewart as the type of girl we all actually loved in high school but didn't know how to talk to until college, and especially a talented actor named Chris Nash who takes on the stereotypical James Dean/rebel-without-a-cause role and actually reveals to us a vulnerable, genuinely likeable human being. Nash's genius is that even though he's playing Dean's character, he doesn't allow himself to fall into a slavish imitation of Dean as so many other young actors have a tendency to do. Instead, he creates his own, unique rebel. Whatever happened to Nash after this film? Of course, the film's real claim to popularity seems to be that McKeon's dream girl is played by Kelly Preston, back in her days when she was the hot blonde in every teen movie and had yet to marry John Travolta. Though underrated as an actress, the true key to Preston's success in those films was her willingness to do more nudity than other young actresses and this film contains what is probably her best and most celebrated nude scene. Of course, it helps that its also one of the rare explicit movie scenes that actually makes sense in terms of the plot, doesn't feel like exploitation, and actually has an unexpected payoff. This is a film about sex and at times, its fairly explicit but its also very humorous and honest. Watching this film, the characters truly come alive and you actually feel like you are just watching a bunch of teenage friends living the best years of their lives.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic comedy - 1950s style 14 April 2002
By D. Roberts - Published on
Verified Purchase
This is truly one of the most entertaining Romantic Comedies I have ever seen. Set in the 1950s, the film exudes this happy-go-lucky innocence that is absolutely charming.
The cast is great, featuring Doug McKeon as a "Fonzie" type guy who wears a leather jacket, and Chris Nash as a nerdy (let's make that VERY nerdy) teenager who is trying his best to lose his virginity. The friendship that develops between this unlikely pair is a treat to see. It makes the movie a feel-good kind of experience that you will savor for days after the credits roll.
The female side includes the lovely Catherine Marie Stewart, playing a wholesome 1950s girl. Kelly Preston plays a shallow & superficial babe who acts as a foil to Stewart's personage. As tender as this all sounds, I would not recommend this film for family viewing. Preston does a nude scene and I must concede.......she has one of the most incredible bodies I've ever seen.
The 1950s Rock & Roll songs in the movie are a wonderful complement to the story on-screen. In truth, I've never cared too much for 50's Rock. However, in this movie I found the songs very refreshing. They did a lot to re-inforce the 1950s feel. In fact, the songs comprise the whole soundtrack - there is no incidental music @ all in the entire film.
If you're looking for an RC movie that covers different territory than the present day movies, you may well like this one. Back to the 50s we go - HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great flick! Needs to show up on dvd! 17 Aug 2004
By Mark Moyer - Published on
Not only is this a very funny fifties nostalgia movie, but a young Kelly Preston in the role of Marilyn, the high school hottie, is -- wow! Too hot to handle! She "teams up" (ahem) with the main geeky character here in my all-time favorite make-out scene. This movie came out back when I was still a single guy and watching it then was like throwin' bacon on the hot grease -- sizzlin'! Not to mention the hilarious antics of Jonathon, the main character, as he clumsily tries to do the kinds of things that every teenage guy wants to do with the best-lookin' chick in the school. Then there's the great fifties tunes sprinkled throughout. It's a great sentimental trip to the past that lacks the recognition of the better-known "American Graffiti" and "Grease" movies, but more than makes up for it when Marilyn's parents go away on a trip...

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic coming of age flick set in southeastern Ohio 27 Aug 1999
By A Customer - Published on
I especially like this movie because it was set in my hometown of Baltimore, Ohio. The downtown street scenes were done in Nelsonville, Ohio. The high school scenes were shot at the old (now torn down to make way for the new)Liberty Union-Thurston Elementary School and parts of the high school. If you've ever been to southeastern Ohio you must own this movie; the scenery is beautiful and the story line is classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful piece of 1950s nostalgia 30 Dec 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This a wonderful, yet rather unknown film. Mischief is set in 1956 in the small Ohio town of Nelsonville. Everything about the film has a great sense of nostalgia about it: the small town, the 1950s cars, the clothing, and the OUTSTANDING soundtrack.
Some quick plot summary: Jonathan (Doug McKeon's character) is an average high school kid, who meets his new rebel neighbor, Gene(Chris Nash), who promises to help him get the girl of his dreams(Kelly Preston). Along the way, Gene falls in love with a girl who already has a boyfriend, resulting in several confrontations.
Mischief combines romance (sex), action, and humor, to be throughly entertaining. (While this film does possess '50s charm, do not be misguided; it is NOT a family-oriented film, as the R-rating indicates.)
