Judge David Johnson has so many hot moves he's considered a lethal weapon in much of the Western Hemisphere.
To make it in this world, you've got to have hot moves!
Before there was American Pie there was Hot Moves, another tale of four high school dorks trying to lose their virginity at all costs.
Facts of the Case
Barry, Michael, Joey, and Scotty seem to live a relatively decent life. They hang out at a bowling alley, live in a warm climate where beautiful women wander the beach wearing next to nothing, and have relatively few worries outside of their extreme horniness. But apparently that's just too much to bear, so one day they decide to make a pact to help each other score the first carnal encounter that has so dominated their thought processes.
Vintage '80s teen sex comedy trash. That's where Hot Moves can proudly hang its hat. This is the kind of stuff that used the frequent the USA Up All Night airwaves, films detailing the moronic escapades of kids who were under the spell of their libidos and the eventual sleazy fallout from their lack of self-control. But that's the charm to these goofy endeavors and Hot Moves runs with it.
Let us consult the checklist:
Hapless young male protagonists
The fat idiot
Weird, pointless nudity
Code Red has bundled all this goodness in a nifty DVD. The video quality (1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen) is solid, especially considering the age of the materials, and the 2.0 stereo adequately transmits the godforsaken soundtrack. Extras: commentary with the cast and crew, and interviews.
If you're hankering for a hit of old-school, nipple-enhanced tomfoolery, Hot Moves should have you covered. Just be prepared to watch a lot of break dancing.
Hot or not? More like lukewarm.
