Summary: Petersen rocks. Great study of LJBF disease.
This story is about a teenage girl who falls in love with a man who's a bit older than the high school crowd. He turns out to be not the sort of guy you would introduce to Dad. Not surprisingly, this guy turns out to be an evil psychotic drug dealer. Also not surprisingly, she has a male friend in her school that she doesn't care to get involved with, as she suffers the LJBF disease. This movie is perfect material for the great "Why do chicks date jerks" debate. The best part of the film is the father, who doesn't back down to the punk or the slightest trace of fear... he's one tough Dad.
