License to Drive
Some guys get all the brakes!
Teenager Les Anderson thinks his life can't get any worse after he flunks his driver's exam, but he's wrong. Even though he didn't receive his license, Les refuses to break his date with the cool Mercedes Lane, and he decides to lift his family's prize luxury car for the occasion. Unfortunately, Mercedes sneaks some booze along and passes out drunk, and a confused Les makes the bad decision of enlisting his rebellious friend, Dean, to help.
Misogynistic, narcissistic, GARBAGE.
One of the best feelings in the world when it comes to film, is absolutely loving something that you thought would be terrible. Don't get me wrong, this movie is pretty bad, but in all the right ways. The bad direction, the dumb characters, the weird writing. Yet all these negatives together work as a whole that entertained me the whole time. The biggest flaw that License to Drive has going for it, is it's weird and confused tone. It's plot revolves around a typical shitty teenager whose soul purpose at this point in life is to get laid, and the ONLY way to accomplish this is by obtaining a license. You'd think with such a story the director would…
The Coreys do dumb shit with a Cadillac and abuse Heather Graham.
The character Charles is fly as hell. He looks and dresses like Peter Bogdanovich. He is so much cooler than Corey Feldman that Feldman just willingly lets him ride shotgun the whole film. I wish they made a spinoff about Charles and his chick magnet wardrobe.
Carol Kane is the shit.
80's love in all it's glory an the two Cory's
As far as 80s comedies go, License to Drive wouldn't earn an award for originality. Corey Haim's character echoes of a weird mixture between Ferris and Cameron, Feldman is just Donatello without the bo staff and the rest of the film is populated with cookie cutter characters. But somehow, despite all the negatives, License to Drive just simply works. It moves along at a brisk pace, keeps the cheese to a minimum and provides a few genuine laughs. License to Drive certainly won't break out amongst the crowd too much, but it just might amongst yours.
One of the most beloved films of my childhood. I idolized the Corey's growing up, especially Haim. He was the definition of a cool kid. This film is pure 80's gold. The first starring role for Heather Graham and also hilarious supporting roles from Richard Masur and Carol King. Some may say it's corny and predictable, but it's a damn fun film and still holds up perfectly for me at least. I am SHOCKED that this film hasn't gotten the remake treatment in these desperate days of Hollywood.
Corey Feldman looks and sounds like a fuckin' gremlin and was the worst.
scavenger hunt 20: film 2/30
task 18: a film where at least 1 person on poster is alive AND at least 1 is deceased (CJ Probst)
honestly....i liked it! just another fun 80s teen film!
when i was 13 i thought corey feldman was so cool cos i had just seen lost boys and stand by me and i was like yo but now that i'm older and wiser i can totally see who the better corey was.....rest in peace :((
but anyway this had some amazing moments.
the driving instructor who just loved his 7-11 coffee??? relatable!
Poorly made and incredibly problematic... yet strangely watchable?
What a ridiculous film!!! I love it. A lot of fun and always nice to see Feldman
i'm going to be honest and say that this made me laugh a little in some parts, but it's crazy how men idealize women and only use them for a romantic subject without even giving them some dialogues. truly amazing.
80's gold, Corey Haim has a great range of facial expressions and my god that bloody car was stressing me out as much as it was him.
So 80's, but a fun 80's film by knowing exactly what it's supposed to be. Breezy.
One of the movies that made me love movies.
My mom used to rent this for me so much from Family Video that I believe at one point, they were going to sell it to us cheap.
80's cheese at it's finest. You are sorely missed, Corey Haim.
"An innocent girl, a harmless drive. What could possibly go wrong?"
One of the funnies, and most underated comedies from the 80's. I only have love for this movie, and i don't even have a licence.
