The idea behind this feature (Genre Guesstimation) is for me to watch a bunch of new movies (or ones that I haven’t seen many times) from the chosen monthly GG genre in order to expand my knowledge of movies within that particular genre.
This month’s Genre was chosen by Kim of Tranquil Dreams and she chose teenage/high school romance movies as the Genre for June.
Let’s see if I felt that this movie would be worthy of being in the company of my others favorite movies in the genre of Teenage/high school romance movies…

Brief Synopsis – After she gets a complete makeover, a single father must deal with the fact that his 15 year old daughter is becoming a woman.
My Take on it – I had hoped that an 80’s movie featuring Tony Danza would be much better, but it was not meant to be. ;(
This movie was a disaster from start to finish and not even Danza’s name could help.
The plot and characters are not very enjoyable to follow and I really couldn’t care what would happen.
The only bright spot in this movie is an appearance of a very young Matthew Perry in an important role.
Love the Trivia below, and I can completely understand that feeling 🙂
Bottom Line – Truly horrendous 80’s movie that uses Danza’s star power name but has very little substance in the plot or characters. Was nice to see a very young Matthew Perry in a pivotal role.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Film critic Gene Siskel hated this movie so much that he stated on “Siskel & Ebert” that it almost made him quit his job. Yet he stated that later the same day he saw a better teen comedy Say Anything… (1989) and it encouraged him not to quit. (From IMDB)
Genre Grandeur Worthy? – Not even close. Horrendous movie all around.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
