Pretty bad; definitely among the worst 80's teen comedies released by a bigger studio. The tone is all over the place, jokes fall flat and football recruitment process isn't really that cinematic subject to begin with. It's quite interesting how Anthony Michael Hall's career went downhill after this while his co-stars became big stars. That said, I wouldn't have expected any kind of greatness from Downey Jr. based on this film, and I have no idea what they were aiming at with his character.

Uma Thurman's young as a kitten, Robert Downey Jr.'s high as a kite, and Anthony Michael Hall's "playing the same jock as he does in every movie" performance is so dialed in, it set back the advancement of touch-tone phone technology by ten years, if not eleven. Paul Gleason's character tells us "you want sympathy, look between shit and syphilis in the dictionary." I'm guessing that's where you'll also find Johnny Be Good.

Johnny Be Good makes me think of a football-themed North. It's a decent '80s cheesy comedy.

A true to life documentary highlighting the scandals that take place in college football recruiting. Unfortunately, it was accidentally released in the comedy genre and never got the attention it deserved.

This was a movie that was a complete mess. A laugh here and there, but that was the best that this could offer. Does anyone remember the horrible remake song by Judas Priest to tie into this movie. Nothing really likable about this movie as it seemed as if everyone was trying way too hard to make this work and it didn't.

Stupid football comedy starring the shrimpy geek from The Breakfast Club as a super cool jock. The crusty Judas Priest cover of Chuck Berry's tune was the only decent thing to come out of this project.
