Overview

The crux of this limited, juvenile comedy is a complex game that begins at midnight and ends by morning. Of main interest is the fact that a young Michael J. Fox plays one of the students involved in the game. Leon (Alan Solomon) has spent a year creating the game and practically needs that long to convince his fellow students to play it. Eventually he wins out, and the various teams of classic stereotypes -- the nerd, the well-groomed hero, the obnoxious sorority sister, the easily duped freshman, and others -- all converge on Los Angeles at midnight. Their treks take them through the Griffith Observatory which because of those odd hours astronomers keep, could conceivably be open. Other locales are interestingly open too, apparently Los Angeles never sleeps.

I remember watching this in the 80s as well and think the whole plot made for good entertainment. Not a Oscar contender but good mindless comedic entertainment. Great for a weekend movie.

An old favorite that has been lost in time. This movie has gone virtually unknown for 2 decades, and is unfortunately unavailable in video rental stores. Last seen on HBO/SHOWTIME in the early part of the 1980's, this movie proved to be a classic eighties film. The old jokes, and crazy styles, as well as those actors we know and love (''Before they were stars'')............. is sure to please young and old. As a child of the 80's I recommend this film with two enthusiastic thumbs up.
