Bought as a cheap film to watch one evening, not expecting much. Mostly chosen because it was about my University. The only real issue is the nonsense geography, which will probably get frustrating to anyone who knows the city (or keen-eyed viewers), as will the film's insistence upon side-by-side rowing, which is rarely done in real life due to the narrow rivers.
However, this is quite a fussy gripe, and one that really isn't all that important as it has no real effect upon the rest of the film.

Once you get past that, the film itself is actually pretty good. It's funny, if a little dated, has decent enough storyline, as well as some good characters. For me, it's actually one of the better portrayals of Oxford in a film- for example the tutor, hilarious, somewhat insane, but focused on success, is certainly a familiar concept.
The story itself, of a keen sportsman from Vegas going to Oxford to meet a girl, and becoming a rower, is mostly coherent and relatively believable- whilst the initial reason for going seems pretty unlikely, throughout the film we soon see that this is a totally normal line of thinking for Rob Lowe's character, who is one for taking chances, being noticed, and doing everything absolutely to the full- the "All American Boy" of the film's title music. The climax of the film, the final boat race scene, with the crowd cycling along the river as the boats race, is very atmospheric and enjoyable.

All in all, a funny and enjoyable film, that does a pretty good job (for a 1980s American film) of portraying the various aspects of life as student in Oxford.

Nick De Angelo (Rob Lowe) is a brash young American student who gambles his way into Oxford University so that he can meet and fall in love with the beautiful and wealthy Lady Victoria Wingate (Amanda Pays). Up until now he has only seen her in magazines and newspapers. Initially, he asks a colleague (Chad Lowe) to move his name up on the list, ensuring his place. But there is a price for this. He works nights as a parking attendant at a casino and this is where he meets the wealthy and recently widowed Las Vegas Lady (Gail Strickland). Together they win a few thousand dollars and Nick is then able and ready to pay off the computer hacker and fund himself at Oxford.

Arriving at the university, he instantly makes friends with Rona (Ally Sheedy) and Geordie (Julian Firth), and he meets his university Don, Simon Rutledge (Alan Howard). Rona falls for Nick, but he is still besotted with Victoria and attempts to make an impression on her, although his methods are often reckless and impulsive. He understandably upsets Victoria's finance, Colin Gilchrist Fisher (Julian Sands), and further enrages Colin's friends, Lionel (Cary Elwes) and Gareth (Anthony Calf). Both Nick and Colin are keen rowers and Simon tries to encourage Nick to work as part of a team instead of going solo. Simon also explains that marrying into money is not straightforward.

He wants to build Nick some character.

Throughout the film, Nick gets into one scrape after another, due to his brashness and often selfish ways. He is kicked off the rowing team at one point, unsuccessfully attempts to beat Colin at a singles rowing race, falls victim to Victoria's flirting and takes her out despite warnings from Gareth, and is eventually expelled from the University, or sent down.

A bit too American with scenes of Oxford thrown in as a travelogue - but otherwise it is harmless.

I first saw this film in the late 80's on VHS, from a rental shop.

I hadn't heard anything about it and was one of those 'take a chance' films.

I had been aware of Rob Lowe films and up to that point hadn't been disappointed. (About Last Night, St Elmos Fire)

It is quite different and i don't think it did too well. Maybe lack of marketing....?

Anyway, its a great film, has its comic moments and is enjoyable from start to finish.

If you like Rob Lowe films and have not seen it.... see it! buy it!

You will not be disappointed.

A feel good film.
