What was that number for the truck driving school?

Such a good guilty pleasure movie. Right up there with Dirty Dancing and Adventures in Babysitting.

Also Spicoli's sidekick. "No shoes, no shirt, no dice."

Can someone explain to me why this was a huge hit? It just seems like terrible filmmaking to me. The jets are the only characters with personalities.

Oh, Goose. Le sob.

@7 - Fnarf - all i can tell you is i was 10 when this came out and it was the coolest shit ever. Me and all my friends were going to be jet pilots and we spent the whole summer air guitaring to the soundtrack on tennis rackets, or whatever was available. We had no idea we were indulging in gay porn. If you were there, you would understand.

I also remember being shocked and quite impressed that Maverick strolled right into the ladies restroom and asked Kelly McGillis to get it on with him right there on the counter. Move over Han Solo, i had a new hero.

I've gotta see this some time. I'm gay.
