All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (8)

  • Curtis Hanson makes a commendable effort with a rather obvious story about three teenage boys who head for a wild weekend in Tijuana, hoping to trade hard cash for manly experience.

  • [An] amiable, but entirely predictable trifle.

  • [It] isn't without its likable moments, but it isn't overloaded with them, either.

    Aug 30, 2004 | Rating: 2/5
  • The dramatic interludes aren't very compelling and the raunchy shenanigans aren't very inspired, although Jackie Earle Haley provides some amusement.

    Mar 23, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Inoffensive of this kind (except for the usual array of stock Mexicans), but wholly unoriginal.

    May 5, 2008 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • Not awful teen-sex flick; Tom Cruise fans should get a kick out of it.

    This teen drama/comedy/adventure is fun for the most part and it has some good actors too, but it could be better, funnier mostly, but also it needs to be a bit more intense maybe? A different director maybe? I'm not sure, but it's pretty good the way it is.

    Insipid junk notable only for early appearances of Tom Cruise and Shelley Long, that's NOT enough to sit through this.

    When you combine Tom Cruise and the director of L.A. Confidential, you probably would expect somethign loftier than this tale of four guys in 1965 who take a road trip to Tijuana to lose their virginity. A sex comedy from 1982, it also has the oddity of having Shelley Long as Cruise's love interest. What elevates this over the typical 80's teen sex comedy is a decent script, believable characters, and solid performances from the four leads Cruise, Jackie Earle Haley, John Stockwell, and John P. Navin Jr. There's is also a great collection of 60's music to give it an American Graffiti feel. It has all the raunch you'd expect from a movie like this, but to its credit, it offers more than just that. I don't know if it's a movie that Cruise would admit to today, but it showcases him when he was just a simple actor instaed of Scientology whack job.
