    As dumb exploitation flicks go, this one is pretty good! So many golden moments and elements in this one, including:

    -A major plot point involving breaking into a... winery.

    -"That son-of-a-bitch threw his panties in my face?"

    -"Who the fuck hit me?" "Batman, muthafucka!"

    This movie is some sort of demented work of genius. Sure there are a few groaners, the ski plot is not terribly interesting and there's a couple of lame musical montages but otherwise this is as brilliant as an cheesy 80's teen comedy can get. It manages to be pretty consistently hilarious and batshit insane throughout its running time and for me that's all I really need. My two favourite requirements of a fun movie are hilarity and insanity and…
