Losin' It Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

There is hardly any variation on the stereotyped teens-and-sex movie in this story about four high school seniors who travel to Mexico to find a brothel and have something to brag about when they get back home. Among the four is the sensitive Woody ([[Performer~P86295~Tom Cruise~tomcruise]]) who is not sure he wants this trip, the nerd Wendell ([[Performer~P51984~John P. Navin, Jr.~johnpnavinjr]]), the jock Spider ([[Performer~P112855~John Stockwell~johnstockwell]]), and the big-talker Dave ([[Performer~P29701~Jackie Earle Haley~jackieearlehaley]]). As the four set off on their adventure, they give a ride to Kathy ([[Performer~P43119~Shelley Long~shelleylong]]), a woman who is a bit ditsy, but decent, going to Mexico to get a divorce from her husband. Once south of the border the quintet meet up with a wide range of clichéd Mexican types and work out their individual experiences in the manner to which teen movies are accustomed. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
