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.

I can't help but smile when thinking of film and television icons from the 80s. From The Dukes of Hazzard to Knight Rider, from Max Headroom to Magnum PI. But there were two actors who's body of work pretty much sums up all that was wonderful about the 80's-- Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. License To Drive (1988) is a GREAT film that stars both the Coreys when they were in their prime. With great hair and great 'tude they made this film an unforgettable timestamp of the era. Haim plays Les Anderson who like every high school kid has two things on his mind--cars and girls. But Les doesn't have the hots for just any girl, no, he has his eye on the most beautiful girl in his high school [played by the one and only, Heather Graham.] He finally scores a date with her, but needs to get his Drivers License first. Well, this is where the real fun begins. License To Drive really has it all. It's good clean teenage fun start to finish. With a totally killer soundtrack and extras to the max, the DVD is well worth your time. Crank up the sound and fasten your seatbelt because you are in for one hell of a ride.
