Amusing story of a nerdy high school student Ronald Miller (Patrick Dempsey) who discovers that becoming popular isn't the greatest thing in the world. After she accidentally ruins her mother's suede dress with some wine, Cyndi, the most popular girl at school (played wonderfully by Amanda Petersen) will do anything to replace it before her mother gets back from her trip.
Enter Ronald. After seeing her desperate attempt to replace the dress at the mall, Ronald makes a deal with Amanda. He'll use the money that he has earned all summer by mowing lawns to buy a new dress, in return for Amanda's help in turning him to Mr. popularity.
Along the way, Ronnie learns lessons about the true value of having real friends, and towards the end of the movie Ronald discovers that he is still himself.
This film, which is no longer produced by Touchstone Video (a division of the Disney Corporation) features many couple of stars before they hit it big. Gerardo, the Latin-singing star who scored a one-hit wonder with "Rico Suave," plays one of the football jocks in the film. However, the real scene-stealer in this film is Seth Green ("Austin Powers"; "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" "Can't Hardly Wait") who plays Ronald's annoying, yet hysterical little brother, Chuckie. By taking a look at Seth in this past role you can understand why he is such a big star today. He is always a trip when it comes to comedic performances.
I loved this film for many reasons, but I think the most memorable scene in this film probably has to be Ronald learning an African dance he saw on television (he thought he was watching "American Bandstand"). After learning it, Ronald performs it at the big dance, not knowing that it would become a huge hit.
This film ranks among the 10 best teenage comedies produced in the 1980's. Let's only hope that it will be re-released on video and DVD in the near future.

An 80's teen romantic comedy that you can watch over and over again. There is more to the story being told than money cant buy you love. I think a deeper message to this story is no matter how life changes and the world around you changes dont get caught up in all. Stay who you are and true to yourself and everything will work out in the end. On another note Im very happy that Buena Vista Home Entertainment is finally going to put this movie out on DVD this summer. So to all of you Can't Buy Me Love fans out there lets hope they include some special features. I myself would love to hear a commentary from Patrick Dempsey and Amanda Peterson and some deleated scenes. There is not much info from Buena Vista other than its being released this summer. ...

I've always loved this movie and have seen it hundreds of times. I fell in love with both Amanda Peterson and Patrick Dempsey and knew they would both have stellar careers some day. I'm so heartbroken that she is no longer with us. Rest in Peace.

When my daughters became teenagers, I had to buy this for them since it is one of my classics growing up. Every time I see one of those cars, I think of this movie and her driving up to her house while Patrick Dempsey is mowing her yard.

"Can't Buy Me Love" (1987) was probably made to cash in on the rush of 80s romantic comedies but it succeeds where others fail, mainly because "Love" has a real message to send out - - be very careful what you wish for; you just may get it and it may not be what you thought you wanted.

Patrick Dempsey, pre-Grey's Anatomy, is Ronnie Miller, a nerdy, smart kid who hates being in the unpopular group, who can't sit in the home section at football games and can't sit anywhere near the "cool" kids in the school cafeteria. He's been saving up for many summers (cutting grass) to buy a really awesome telescope. He goes to the mall to get it and instead runs into Cindy Mancini (Amanda Petersen), the girl of his dreams, who is pretty, popular and the head cheerleader. Although they go to school together and Ronnie cuts her grass, Cindy doesn't even know his name. Cindy is in a predicament - - she has worn her mom's off-limits suede outfit to an end of summer party and got wine spilled on it. A replacement is a thousand dollars - - which Ronnie happens to have handy. He forsakes his telescope, instead "paying" Cindy a thousand dollars to pretend to be his girlfriend for the first month of school. As imagined, the alleged match is met with skepticism and horror by the "in crowd" and just plain skepticism by Ronnie's old friends, who he will soon abandon for life in the fast lane of the popular kids. Cindy makes Ronnie over, to make him look more hip and cool, and she soon begins to see more in Ronnie than originally met her eye. But their one month contract is up, and Ronnie has come to believe his own popularity. Will Ronnie fall from grace with the popular kids? Will he realize that Cindy has fallen for him? Will they get together?

Love this classic 80's movie! I was thrilled when I found it for purchase on Amazon & for such a great price!
I still love this movie as much as I did the 1st time ever watching it. It's funny, some cheesy romance & a deeper lesson about money not being able to buy true love & happiness.
For me, the most memorable scene in this film is Ronnie learning an African dance he saw on television (he thought he was watching "American Bandstand"). After learning it, Ronnie performs it at the big dance, not knowing that it would become a huge hit (because everyone followed what the "popular" kid did).
