Quirky, nice-guy Lloyd Dobler pines for his dream girl, brainy Diane Court, throughout high school. After graduation, he finally decides to go for it. LESSONS LEARNED: Peter Gabriel music is super-useful for boombox hoisting and as a soundtrack for fooling around in a car; white-collar crime can be featured in a romantic comedy; pens = not great break-up gifts. Also, take a risk.
