Editorial Reviews

Take a fun-filled trip with Student Exchange, a witty comedy about the importance of being yourself. High school seniors Carole and Neil have made the grade academically, but they can't seem to pass Greeley High's difficult popularity test. When they discover that two foreign exchange students have canceled their visit to Greeley, the whiz kids decide to remake themselves and pose as European students Simone and Adriano. How long can they keep up the charade, and what will they find when popularity finally comes their way?

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com's standard return policy will apply.

Holy Cow! After waiting for decades, this movie is finally available in a clean digital format! If you search the internet for reviews, you'll see that the film's legion of fans have been holding onto their off-the-air taped VHS copies, often fragmented and way worn-out, since it was aired in 1987, and for good reason. This film is one of the best 80's time-capsule experiences there is, and with several big stars and some pretty creative plot devices. If you are a fan of John Hughes films of this era, you'll feel right at home with Student Exchange. It's such a fun idea, I'm surprised no one has yet developed a full-blown theatrical production based on it. If you're considering a blind buy on this and have never seen it, you can rest assured that you'll be well-compensated for your faith in this film, and will enjoy it with your family for generations to come.

Omg..I've been looking for YEARS for a copy of this. When I found it was a made-for-TV movie, I became disappointed at the small chance of it going to DVD, but here it is !!

It's a super fun movie that I enjoyed watching as a kid. It is an all around, feel-good film that has a happy ending.

I first hired this out of the video shop 20 years ago (way back when DVDs hadn't yet been invented) and I remember watching it 3 times in one week because I loved it that much. It wasn't until last year something jogged my memory, and I suddenly remembered this movie again. I didn't have high hopes for it being on DVD so was very excited when I came across it. At first I was worried it wouldn't be as good as I remembered, and I had hyped it up in my mind too much. Luckily it was even better than I remembered. I may be an adult now, but it did not stop me from enjoying this movie about two teenagers Carole and Neil who have been ignored through out their high school years. In their senior year, they realize it's their last chance to get noticed. When Carole comes across a letter stating two foreign exchange students will not be attending their school, she decides to hide the letter and convince her friend Neil they should pretend to be the foreign exchange students. After some weeks preparing their makeovers and perfecting their accents, they turn up at school with Carole being a beautiful French girl, and Neil pretending to be a charasmatic Italian boy. They are an instant hit, and are soon part of the popular crowd. Unfortunately they also manage to ruffle a few feathers, and are soon realizing popularity is not what they thought it would be. It's a lovely, funny movie from beginning to end, and I'm sure I will be watching it several times a year now I have my own copy.

I will never forget the Wonderful World of Disney movies and this one was my absolute favorite. I have been looking for it off and on for years and now here it is.

Two nerds pose as foreign exchange students and become popular but they can't keep up the charade forever. I highly recommend this!

I watched this 20 years ago, and was excited when I saw it was out to buy. The price was a little more than I'm usually willing to spend, but since I'm planning to watch this many times it was probably money well spent. The movie was just as wonderful as I remembered so I'm glad I didn't just hype it up in my memory. If you love Disney movies, then you will love this Disney vintage movie.

I didn't catch this movie on the Disney channel back in the 1980s because I was in college at the time. It's a cute movie and fun to watch. The two geeks are very clever in disguising themselves as foreign exchange students. Of course, their ruse is discovered, but the film is heartwarming and has a nice ending. Great for familes.

I was so excited to find this movie. I have been looking for a copy of it for years. We had a copy on Beta growing up, but obviously this is so much better. I actually purchased several copies to share with my family. One of our childhood favorites for sure.

I loved this movie and it was such a favorite of my kids!!! So nice to see it available on dvd by demand. The price is higher than for other dvds, but it's well worth it to have a copy of this dvd my family has been looking for for 15 years!!!!
