License to Drive

Year: 1988
Production Co: Davis Entertainment
Director: Greg Beeman
Cast: Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Heather Graham, Richard Masur
One of the higher points of the Corey Haim/Corey Feldman nexus, and also the film that introduced a teenaged heather Graham to the world.

The dreams of a nation wrapped up in one Freudian statement about independence, sex, growing up, saving the day and more. And it's all dressed by cinematographers and titles designers who graduated from the Los Angeles in the 80s School of Design.

Les (Haim) and Dean (Feldman) are high school buddies on the cusp of the ultimate freedom as Les is poised to get his drivers licence. They just have to get past Les' mother's psycho cooking, his irritating sister Natalie, and convince local hottie Mercedes (graham) not to dance on the roof of his grandfather's bellowed Caddilac. When les fails the exam, he keeps it secret and the boys go on the road to create mayhem anyway.

Just the thing for horny teens, and thankfully I was one at the time. Watch for George Clooney's writing and producing partner Grant Heslov.
