How long can they keep up the charade, and what will they find when popularity finally comes their way?

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't believe it's available on DVD! April 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome ! September 15, 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking everywhere for this! June 20, 2012
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars After 20 years I still love this movie!!! February 17, 2013
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 remember watching this movie as a child and still recalled the ending song. Watching this movie brought me back to middle school watching the Sunday night movie.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny throughout. November 4, 2013

Although It's an old film it was enjoyable throughout. It just shows that obscenity and swearing are not requirements for a film to be appreciated.
