Overview

Les (Corey Haim) is embarrassed when he fails his driving test in this routine teen comedy. His buddies are depending on him to provide the wheels for the weekend, but Les is more interested in his Saturday date with Mercedes (Heather Graham). Les secretly steals his grandfather's immaculate 1972 Cadillac for the adventure. The dream date soon turns into a nightmare when Dean (Corey Feldman) bothers Les with camera flashes and cigar smoke, and his sloppy-drunk date dances on the hood of the car with high heels. The car is towed when he parks illegally, and later the teens are chased by revved-up motorheads who challenge him to a race. Carol Kane and Richard Masur play Les' parents.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Other than their first pairing in The Lost Boys, 1988's License to Drive remains the other highly entertaining outing from the '80s duo that could do no wrong -- Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Thanks to a madcap script from Neil and Michael Tolkin, the partying teen dreams blossomed with the vehicle, playing up both their natural talents before their egos got the better of them (see the following year's Dream a Little Dream for the first inklings). On the supporting front, Richard Masur and Carol Kane couldn't be funnier as the parents, with other juicy bits provided by future Fresh Prince Dad James Avery along with the one and only Heather Graham in her big-screen debut. A sizable hit in the theaters, License to Drive remains a late-'80s classic thanks to its sizable success in the theaters and later as a mainstay on cable TV and video.
