Patrick Dempsey stars as Ronald, a high school nerd about to enter his senior year, who yearns to be one of the " cool kids."
Cindy Mancini (Amanda Peterson) is a beautiful cheerleader, and is not only one of the most popular girls in school, but also the secret object of his affection.
One night at a party, Cindy ruins an expensive outfit ( which actually belongs to her mother - white suede? How 80's can you get! ) , and Ronald offers the $1,000 needed to replace it, but only if she will pretend to date him for one month in order to make him " popular ".
Although somewhat skeptical about Ronald's plan, Cindy agrees, and her new " boyfriend " turns out to be right about what he thinks dating Cindy will do for him -- as he soon becomes one of the most likeable ( & desirable ) guys in school, all thanks to his association with Cindy.
However, Ronald will find out that the price of his all new popularity may be a great deal higher than he could have ever anticipated.
I absolutely adore this film, it's up there with Pretty in Pink & Some Kind of Wonderful as one of my all time favourite 80's teen films.
Boasting great performances & a great soundtrack, this much underrated 80's teen comedy is an essential purchase for anyone who likes their 80's teen comedies sweet, frothy and fun.
