Keith Nelson (Eric Stoltz) is a young man with woman trouble. He's lucky enough to have got a date with High School princess Amanda Jones (Lea Thompson), but does she really like him? Or is he just a way of getting back at her insensitive rich-kid boyfriend Hardy Jenns (Craig Sheffer)? The young teen outsider is confused, so confused in fact that he fails to notice how his tomboy best-friend Watts (Mary Stuart Masterson) really feels about him. Vintage High School drama from the pen of 1980s teen supremo John Hughes ('The Breakfast Club', 'Pretty in Pink').
