How much does true love cost?

Can't Buy Me Love a.k.a. Boy Rents Girl is a movie that I would not have in my personal collection but whenever it's on T.V. I'll never miss it. I don't know why I like some of these type of movies. Maybe the theme of the movie is what interest me (more likely I watched it one day when I had nothing to do). This was another Patrick Dempsey film that came out during the late 80's (who was pushing this guy in Hollywood?).

A gangly nerd who spends his spare time mowing lawns (he's saving up his money so he can buy a telescope) falls for a blonde girl. One time whilst at the mall looking at the telescopes, he notices his dream girl is in trouble. The dumb ditz ruined her mom's favorite outfit. At the spur of the moment he makes her one of the strangest offers around. What is it? You'll have to find out!

Another totally 80's films. The gaudy clothes, mullet mania and the bad dance music that came out during this time period (don't forget the women's poofy hair). Hopefully none of these styles will ever come back into style again. Strangely enough, this movie was remade recently. I guess the film-makers can never get enough of this plot device. If you love those pesky 80's movies, then this one has nor name on it!!!

What did you think of this review?

Seth Green is great as Ronald's younger brother.

Yeah, there is something about this movie that has always bothered me, but I can't put my finger on it. I actually totally dislike Patrick Dempsey in the film. Boy, has he come a long way!:)
