Starring Patrick Dempsey, Amanda Peterson, Seth Green
1987 / 115 Minutes / Touchstone Pictures
I think the last time I saw Can’t Buy Me Love was probably a couple years after it came out on VHS… so maybe 1989. I enjoyed it then and I still do, even though it has not held up as well as some of the other classic 80’s teen movies. It has all the classic teen comedy cliches, however this movie invented a lot of them.
Patrick Dempsey and Amanda Peterson were great together and their lawnmower ending is a movie classic. Even though it’s not a perfect film it’s an absolute 80’s staple that has to be see and appreciated.
And to the recent loss of Amanda… RIP, this was your movie and you will always be every geek’s Cindy Mancini.
