Ah, Phoebe Cates. A key factor in the Great Kitten Holocaust of the early 80s.

The greatest scene of any 80s movie.
The worst day of the 80s to be a kitten.

Is he gonna shiat, or is he gonna kill us?

He's gonna shiat, then he's gonna kill us.

Classic.

40 years ago it was a summer movie, but now school starts weeks earlier.

Despite that scene, I always thought JJL was sexier.

That's what happens when you write the script and shoot the scene before you know what music rights you have.

Fun Fact: JJL wanted to go further with her nude scenes, and the director/producers told her, "Nah, we're good."

And, yeah, Phoebe showing her boobs in slow motion is overrated. JJL nekkid in the cabana lying on the couch was MUCH better.

/and lock the damn bathroom door!

When watching Game of Thrones years after everybody else, I felt ultra weird seeing Emilia Clarke get naked all over the place. I had to pause and check her age out. I knew that HBO wasn't going to put the titties of some girl of thirteen out there like that but really, she looked super young.

40 years later and I *still* can't hear "Moving in Stereo" without picturing *that* scene. Same with "Carry On Wayward Son" and Henry Winkler's 'Nam flashbacks or "Age of Aquarius" and hippies dancing around a grave

The grave song is final scene "Let the sun shine in"

Age of Aquarius is the opening number when Claude gets to central park.

But your point stands.(and I had to go watch both of them now)

"Somebody's Baby" could still be used for ED commercials.

It was on some channel on my new shiatty Comcast cable last night.

I hadn't watched it in a while, and a lot of it kind of creeped me out.

It was followed by Dazed and Confused, which did not creep me out at all.

I was 21 and I had zero problem killing kittens to Jennifer Jason Leigh. Many times.

Yeah, maybe it's my age or the movie not aging well, but now I just kinda feel bad for all the characters. I don't laugh as much as I used to.

The movie is pretty much, "Let's embarrass the fark out of everyone."

Phoebe Cates May get all the attention, but Jennifer Jason Leigh is hot as well.

All those 80s sex comedies were of their time. I can't remember which movie made then which seemed like one big excuse to show as many breasts as possible without having an X rating.

Louis Toolz: I always felt a little dirty watching this because Jennifer Jason Leigh looks like she's fourteen.


I was 12 when the movie came out, and probably closer 14 when I first saw it since it's something I would have watched late at night on HBO so I have no moral quandary. If I'd watched it for the first time at my current age, yeah, that would just seem wrong.

skinink: Phoebe Cates May get all the attention, but Jennifer Jason Leigh is hot as well.


She solidly proved that in Single White Female, where she's an unhinged, clingy, homicidal lunatic, yet still incredibly hot despite waving enough giant red flags to launch herself into the air like a parasailer.

I knew I'd reached a certain age when I started agreeing with the concerns that the adults movies had.

Also shoutout to Ray Walston for making the term "aloha" sound as terse & professional as possible.

For this scene, they told Phobe Cates she was going to walk in on him jerking off, but she could have safely assumed he would be "acting".
Judge Reinhold brought the largest dildo he could find and had it in Cates' sightline when she entered the room, without warning her first of course.

Quality acting prank resulting in super genuine cringe.

Well, at least that's not quite as bad as what they did to the actress in The Birds.

I knew I reached a certain age when I realized that Cameron Crowe perfectly timed the guitar chord from Moving in Stereo to Phoebe Cates revealing her boobies.

See, the problem with the Phoebe Cates scene is that you can't jerk to it.  I mean, of course you can.  But at certain points you're just jerking it to Judge Reinhold jerking it

I remember watching it on basic cable back in high school.  My Mom walked into the room during the scene where Mr. Hand goes to Spicoli's house.....and as a former teacher, she loved it.

It's a great movie, and I'm glad I didn't see it until I was in my 40s... If I'd seen it in my teens or something, I'd have missed the real movie while drooling over boobs.
