A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon DVD


Girl-crazy, egocentric and hormonal, Jimmy Reardon (River Phoenix, Stand By Me, Indiana Jones) is a womanising teen living in '60s Chicago. He spends his days hanging out with his wealthy friend Fred (Matthew Perry, Friends) sipping coffee and smooth-talking his way into the arms of women. Jimmy is flummoxed after he graduates from high school. He is faced with a tough decision either go to a business school and please his family, or get a full-time job. Lovestruck and defiant, Jimmy decides on neither. He is intent on making it to Hawaii, where he will win the love... of his sweetheart and avoid adult responsibility. The only trouble is, Jimmy's only got one night and he doesn't have a penny to his name Director William Richert's star-studded teenage romp is as charming and chaotic as Jimmy Reardon himself. Also features Ann Magnuson (Panic Room, The Hunger), (Ione Skye (Say Anything) and Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), plus an awesome soundtrack by Oscar winner Bill Conti (The Right Stuff, Rocky).

He is infatuated with his girlfriend Lisa (Salenger), but her chastity is getting in the way of his teenage libido.
