something black lacquered, chug! You'll be wasted off your

I am searching for a wonderfully horrible movie to make into

This priceless, tacky, ignorant decade is my first love. I
can never resist it.
Back then cleavage
was all it took to drive men to madness, black lacquer meant
ultra sheik, and stone washed denim passed for "thug".

it was the 80s, we didn't know shit!

Do not prepare yourself for
the off the wall, screwball Jim Carrey we all know today.
This is an extremely dull and typical character that he's
embarrassed to look back on.
In the 80s, Hollywood
California was the scene to be in, because it was there that
anything could happen... and always did.

female bodybuilder standing in the sunroof dressed like a

Hutton & Jim Carrey
I ask you to forget
all that you think you know, because in the 80s things were
very very different. For instance, high school boys who were
dying to get laid would clumsily scramble away from an aggressive
beautiful woman, and this is where our story begins.
Jim Carrey plays
a horny high school kid on the verge of a nervous breakdown
because his girlfriend won't have sex with him.
Solution: a wild evening excursion to West Hollywood with
the fellas... in an ice-cream truck! You've never
seen anything so outrageous (and it seems that no one
else in this movie has either). Despite how crazy things
are in Hollywood, the mere sight of an oversized fiberglass
ice-cream cone attached to the back of a truck turns heads.
Let the craziness begin! I get absolutely giddy at these
moments. That 80s pop music chimes in, the camera flashes
to the bright city signs... "Palm Readings! A
Wonderbread ad on the side of a bus! A Diner!"
and the excitement has only just begun! Now comes the
parade of Holly-weird eccentrics, so grab hold of your
Hot Strutin' Valley Girls with attitude,
Punk Rockers probably on their way to a riot or something,
and yes, even a super model walking a LION!

you've seen it all but you haven't seen anything! Soon
these voyeurs of mayhem find themselves in a trendy pickup

thing about the 80s was what passed for a "hot
babe". This is one of the hottest clubs in LA (so
we're told) and these girls are supposed to be unbelievable!
Take a look.

By this point
we have already been introduced to Lauren Hutton's character,
a sultry millionaire who's on the prowl for virgin blood.
Sitting at the bar she invites Jim over. He is quickly
seduced and brought back to her place .
This is the
point where we have to start buyin' the premise that
horny young men try to resist the advances of beautiful
women. As she crawls over him removing his clothes he
nervously chatters away. It's a comedic staple in most
of your "teens tryin' to get laid" 80s flicks.
So she bites
him, sucks his blood and the next morning he doesn't
remember a thing.

That's 80s for tits.
The belt shows off the figure.
So his girlfriend
finds out and breaks up with him. Throughout this film
she shows us many fashionable outfits. Most of them
are belted jump suits.
don't know what we were thinking back then... comfort?
I'm really not sure. Maybe it was just more efficient?
You didn't have to match a shirt with pants and you
could just step into it and zip it up the front... like
a painter's smock!
it is time for the wicked Halloween party! Oh this movie
has so many presents in store for you! Here we get a
giant serving of all that is 80s. Music, costumes, dance
and hair. I am in heaven!
Have you ever just stopped, separated yourself from a
plot and just soaked in the horrible 80s dance moments?
It's my life's blood.
So much make-believe "cool" and Running Man
as far as the eye can see! This
Blues Brothers couple rocks my world.
I was also
pleasantly surprised to come across (I use the term
loosely) a "teenage Bob's sexiest movie moment".
Here at the Halloween party Lauren Hutton dressed in
this French cut tuxedo leotard, fishnet stockings, and
jacket with tails. This was all it took to make me happy
during my puberty years.
The movie concludes
with Lauren's army of New Wave Lite vampire pretty boys chasing
Jim until the vampire curse is broken from being devirginized
by his girlfriend.
That's Jim Carrey in the center
back when he had to do everything they told him to.
As a self
proclaimed connoisseur of the 80s I strongly recommend
spending the 99¢ and renting this on a weeknight
when the rates are cheaper and they let you rent a second
movie for half price. It's just that good.
yeah, here's one last clip from the movie that I'm sure
Jim would want you to see. They're in the shower. I
forget what context it was in.
