High School U.S.A.

1h 37m Comedy, Teen 1983

A pre-Marty/all-party Michael J. Fox is a nerd with the burning desire to rule the school.

One of the most beloved TV movies of the 1980s, HIGH SCHOOL U.S.A. pairs Michael J. Fox and Crispin Glover before their breakout roles in BACK TO THE FUTURE. Excelsior Union High senior J.J. Manners (Fox) navigates the cliques and rivalries that high school entails, all while pursuing Beth Franklin (Nancy McKeon, THE FACTS OF LIFE), who happens to be the girlfriend of quarterback and class president Beau Middleton (Anthony Edwards, ER). When the animosity between J.J. and Beau reaches its boiling point, there’s only one way to settle the battle for Beth’s affection: a drag race. Featuring appearances from Todd Bridges (DIFF’RENT STROKES), Bob Denver (GILLIGAN’S ISLAND), a dancing robot, and Glover as — you guessed it — a weirdo nerd, HIGH SCHOOL U.S.A. is total joy from start to finish. You should also know that this movie was made by the director of THE GARBAGE PAIL KIDS MOVIE.
