The most hilarious parody I'd ever seen...and the only 1980's movie I'd ever watch again. All walks of life are lampooned here and is highlighted by the great acting (supporting cast included). The DMV,concerned parents, radical protestors, policemen, teachers, overzealous values in general are parodied in this movie - to the max. Also, two different scenes where a Red Neck tow-truck driver, and later, an elderly, chronic alcoholic behind the wheel of a car are lampooned. Every scene, to me, is hilarious....and that says something for I find most all comedies to be contrived & bland.
To me, this gem was NOT AT ALL about driving school or teenage love....as much as it was an excellent, sardonic pinting of 1980's life in general. Was it supposed to have a plot???!! I don't know, I was too busy laughing at the Saturday Night Live-ish portrayals of various characters in life.
