Review

This movie is one of Patrick Dempsey's better movies in my opinion.

Loverboy captures the 80's feel with punk hair styling, 80's clothing and the romantic comedy feel. Not to mention special appearances by Kirstie Alley, Carrie Fisher, and Robert Picardo!

Randy Bodek (Patrick Dempsey) needs to go back to college.

Similarly to "Soul Man" with C. Thomas Howell, Randy loses support for his college tuition from his parents. Rather than the scholarship option as played out in "Soul Man", Randy is forced to find a job so that he can go back to school to be with his girlfriend, Jenny (Nancy Valen).

He picks up a job being a pizza delivery boy for Seņor Pizza. Before long he meets and befriends Alex (Barbara Carrera), who seduces him and shows him the way of a gigolo, giving his number to others like her.

Whenever there's an order for "extra anchovies", Randy has to provide an extra special service for the customers. As a result of his attentions he becomes the "Love doctor of Beverly Hills.".

A great success at $200 a time, Randy has literally to drag himself out to the mansions of his customers.

And this opens up the way to several hilarious sequences as he tries to earn enough money to get back to school.

The movie has it's neat moments, like when, in a bid to silverscreen magic, Patrick's character tries to learn how to dance similar to Fred Astaire. Some more of this can be seen in "Happy Together", in the rooftop dance scene.

Verdict

Definitely worth seeing, as Patrick Dempsey puts on another good performance along with appearances by Carrie Fisher and Kirstie Alley.

Funny and a true romantic fairytale.
The movie is only for those that believes in romantic comedies.
