It is graduation time at California’s surf-side Pacifica College – the culmination of four years of sun, sea, surf and occasional study.
Before donning their caps and gowns, though, these gilded youths plan one final dusk-to-dawn party. For roommates Molly, Val and Gina, this is the first night of the rest of their lives.
An attempt to turn singer Susanna Hoffs from The Bangles into a movie star, that failed because she’s not a very good actress, and the film isn’t that great either.
Hoffs and co-star Dedee Pfeiffer (Michelle’s sister) are out of their depth, but the performances of the more experienced Joan Cusack and Michael Ontkean help make this a passable, slightly saucy comedy.
