Plot summary

The film is about life on a Saturday night in St. Cloud, a small Minnesota town. Russ Cadwell is ready to have sex with his girlfriend, Diane Lundahl. Doug, who is a petty thief, decides to become a burglar. Traci is Doug's friend, suggests that they burglarize a nearby house. Mr. Lundahl, father of Diane, Karen, and Kevin, is going out on a date with a woman named Peggy. They have sex in a car at the park.

Karen is babysitting for Bill and Lynn Neal as they go out to eat, Karen's boyfriend comes over to the house and talks her into having a party at the house where she is babysitting. Russ Cadwell gets into an argument with Diane. She and her friend, Tobi, go to the local bar and drink and they watch "Bad Mouth", the band playing there. The lead band members are Larry Hays and Paul Flum. They both are hoping to score. Things get crazier later on as time goes by, but things get better.

Critical reception

TV Guide says the film "suffers from trying to explore a variety of situations, and ultimately gets nothing said at all. The situations are routine, lacking wit or originality. Director Dennis Klein's pacing is slack and reveals no flare (sic) for comedy."[3]


Franken, appeared on the 1985-86 season finale of Saturday Night Live during Weekend Update; as part of his segment, he announced that Columbia Pictures was test marketing the film in Sacramento, California in June 1986; he also displayed a map depicting the location of the movie theaters showing the film, and provided directions to the nearest theater for viewers traveling there from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Portions of the movie were filmed in Glenview, Illinois.
