HIGH SCHOOL USA
Story: Michael J.Fox leads all start cast of TV actors in this very weird high school comedy that could have been directed by David Lynch.
Why You Should See it: Although virtually every actor in this movie is a TV star (Todd Bridges, Nancy McKeon), it’s the genesis of Michael J.Fox’s stardom that is the center of gravity here.
In fact, “High School USA” is the set-up for Marty McFly in “Back to the Future.” Fox is the underdog with Napoleon complex who has the magical ability to see the most negative situation (wrecking a parent’s car) into a possitive (making said parent think he drunk drove the car himself).
And guess who his side kick is? None other that Cripsin Glover, George McFly himself, who plays an awkward, under confident sidekick. This film is a must-see for any “Back to the Future” fan.
Fox plays a hustler, lover, scientist, and demonstrates what true stardom is. The ability to transcend a role, to offer his audience a true sacrificial hero, an ability viciously missing into today’s shows and movies. I Can’t Believe It’s On YouTube.
