More Trivia from Midnight Madness
Midnight Madness a.k.a. "The Allnighter" -it's original working title, is one of Disney's first PG rated comedies.
Although a flop at the box office, it gives us a chance to experience what many of us would enjoy to able to do; spend a night engaged in a scavenger hunt like activity!
The premise of this movie is basic at best. A college geek gets a group of highly competitive teams to play his game.
Through a multitude of tasks and brainteasers he manipulates them like chess pieces throughout greater Los Angeles. Along the way the teams encounter many strange setbacks such as short circuited computers, flat tyres, a surly tow truck driver, a runaway brother (played by Michael J Fox in his first movie role) and of course the legendary Paul Reubens (a.k.a. Pee Wee Herman also in his first role) as a cowboy outfitted arcade proprieter.
The movie culminates in a big finish where the players create havoc at a prestigious hotel.
I know what you may be thinking, but this is one of my favorite movies of the 80's.
It has everything I look for in a comedy. A highly underrated film, it has so many things going for it, especially the great acting of Stephen Furst (Animal House, St Elsewhere).
If someone I knew held a great allnighter, I'd be there in a second!
