Synopsis After spending an entire summer obsessing over the beautiful girl housesitting next door, shy Tom allows his slick, more confident brother Craig to set him up on a date with her. The operation involves a Craig makeover, the theft of Craig's classic car, borrowed identification, and, unfortunately, three dead bodies, a psychotic florist, and lethal threats from a Chinatown mob boss. An above-average teen caper romance, with a few unusually grim plot points.Shy teen Tom McHugh longs to ask out the beautiful girl-next-door, but can't seem to work up the nerve until his older brother Craig, home from law school, sets the two up on a date. Craig even lends Tom his car, clothes, and his credit cards, which leads to a case of mistaken identity as Tom and his date are pursued by his brother's enemies, including the Chinese Mafia.Also produced by Summers/Quaid Productions. Film utilizes clips from both Robocop and Married to the Mob. Estimated budget $9.6 million. Filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada; and in Hawaii. Filming began August 27, 1990; completed November 9, 1990. Prints by DeLuxe. Released in USA August 16, 1991. Released on video February 27, 1992. Reviewed in New York Times and Los Angeles Times August 16, 1991....Very amusing....Wong puts a spin on his role, just as this film puts a spin on its genre......McNamara is simply wonderful....Hawke is irresistible...
