Mischief Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This entertaining teen comedy is set in the effervescent 1950s and involves the friendship of the introverted, clumsy Jonathan ([[Performer~P47729~Doug McKeon~dougmckeon]]) and the nonconformist, extroverted Gene ([[Performer~P51889~Chris Nash~chrisnash]]). Jonathan's main objective is to win over the sexy Marilyn ([[Performer~P57732~Kelly Preston~kellypreston]]), in spite of his shyness, while Gene has his own love-life to maintain with his girlfriend Bunny ([[Performer~P68217~Catherine Mary Stewart~catherinestewart]]) -- as well as counseling Jonathan on how to attract women. Gene also has to defend himself against Kenny ([[Performer~P8912~D.W. Brown~dwbrown]]) the class bully while trying to work out a borderline relationship with his widowed father, who has zero tolerance for his often wild escapades. As Jonathan and Gene handle life's challenges, the 1950s emerges as a potent presence on screen in the form of background setting, including movies and music, as well as dress and customs that were popular in that distinctive era. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
