All I can remember from the movie is that a guy in highschool got braces. His friend told him that he looks like a dork and the guy responds "i know!" and gives his friend a big smile. Sorry that is all the info I have. Me and my sister used to crack up over that all the time, I think its time to bring it back
. Thanks for any help.

I'm really good at this. But man, going to need a little more information than that. Did either of those kid actors go on to be in any other films? Approximately what year was it released? Are we talking '82, or '88? Anything else about the plot, even the vaguest idea?

Poltergeist II:The Other Side.

Later on the braces attack him.

Nu uhh... though there are braces mentioned.


You're supposed to clean your braces
and come downstairs now.

Shut up, jerko! I'm doing it, okay?

Don't "okay" me!

I really dont remember anything else about it. We were pretty young at the time. I just remember it had to be around '87-'88 when we saw it and it was out on VHS. Sorry to be so vague.

This could be it, I will have to check it out again. It was probably the 80s last time I watched it. I remember some boobies(blue footed of course) being in it
. I need to focus lol!

Normally I can find out stuff like this easy, but damn this is difficult. Now im on a mission.

I will check this out too. I mean, what 80s movie didn't have somebody with braces being called a dork?

I was just telling my wife I wanted to watch a good 80s movie tonight and asked her if she had ever seen Real Genius with Val Kilmer. One of my other favorites was Rad the BMX movie..80s FTW a reply to: DD2029

"This is GOD Kent!"


Oh, that was classic....

I think the 16 Candles movie though, is a good bet, if you watch that.

Can't go wrong with anything by John Cusak in the 80's. The paperboy in Better off Dead is hilarious.



Can't decide if that one is better than The Sure Thing or not.
