Reviewed October 10th, 1999 by Staff
Pauly Shore stars in this comedy about a farm girl who goes to California for college. Rebecca (Carla Gugino) lives in a small farm town in South Dakota and after graduation, she heads for college in California only to find that people are quite different and that she does not fit in. Across the hall from her, she meets “Crawl”, her residential advisor who is plain crazy. Crawl has been at college for six years and does nothing but party – but inside he is very intelligent. Rebecca befriends Crawl and he changes her style and becomes “hip”.
Thanksgiving comes around and it is now time for her to return home for vacation where her family and boyfriend eagerly await her return. At the last moment, Rebecca asks Crawl to come with her. The fly to South Dakota and meet and greet with her family. They do not know what to make of her knew style or her friend she brought along.
As the movie progresses, you see how Crawl tries to adapt to farm living and tries to get in good with the family. Rebecca’s boyfriend attempts to ask her to marry her but she does not love him anymore so she gets Crawl to stand up and say that he has already asked her to marry him – the whole family is freaked out.
The video is presented in 1.85:1 widescreen and is not 16x9 enhanced. Overall, the picture is clear with no signs of compression problems, but shimmering is present in some scenes. Colors and blacks seem to be dead on.
The audio is presented in DD 2.0 and does pretty well. Dialogue and music seem clear, but of course a 5.1 mix would have been better.
The only extra is a trailer. The movie runs 96 minutes and is rated PG-13.
