Jimmy Reardon (River Phoenix – Stand By Me) is a womanising teen living in ‘60s Chicago.
He spends his days hanging out with his wealthy friend Fred (Matthew Perry, Friends) sipping coffee and smooth talking his way into the arms of women.
Jimmy is flummoxed after he graduates high school. He is faced with a tough decision – either go to business school and please his family, or get a full-time job.
Lovestruck and defiant, Jimmy decides on neither. He is intent on making it to Hawaii, where he will win the love of his sweetheart and abscond from adult responsibility. The only trouble is, Jimmy’s only got one night – and he doesn’t have a penny to his name…
Director William Richert’s star-studded teenage romp is as charming and chaotic as Jimmy Reardon himself. Also features Ann Magnuson (Panic Room, The Hunger), Ione Skye (Say Anything) and Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), plus an awesome soundtrack by Oscar winner Bill Conti (The Right Stuff, Rocky).
