Fred Ward steals the show!
Lieutenant Fimple ( Fred Ward ) has had a bad day. He thinks his wife is cheating on him so he follows her to a make out point. Then he goes to his mutual friends house and picks her up because the man that he thinks his wife is having an affair with is the woman’s husband ( are you following me so far? ). He gets back to the make out point and they are gone. So he drives home his friend and then he gets into an accident. When he gets home, the man’s ( who is apparently sleeping with his wife ) son has just finished giving his daughter a good night kiss. ” Good evening Lieutenant Fimple, ” the boy says, ” F*** you! ” Fimple replies. It is one of the funniest moments in the film and the film has quite a few of them.
Secret Admirer is one of the slew of teen films that came out in the 80’s that was high on entertainment, if you let it do that. It is one of those films that should not be over analyzed. It is simple entertainment and it is goofball highschool entertainment. The characters in the film have fun with the roles they are thrust into and the dialogue is fresh and funny. Look for the part when the mailman comes to Michael’s house and is apparently late with the mail. Classic.
I wish they could make films like this as we head into the new millennium. They are here to entertain and nothing more. And that is sometimes all we can ask for.
Trite story saved by a good 80s cast.
If you like teen 80s movies, don’t pass up Secret Admirer. The story has been done plenty of times. A love letter, of which the author remains conveniently anonymous, unintentionally circulates through many hands, causing loads of misconceptions and people making fools of themselves. ‘The Love Letter’ (with Ellen Degenerous and Tom Selleck) was the most recent rendition of this story, and I’m sure there was a 50s version of it, too. But what the heck, it’s an 80s teen comedy with a well-known teen cast.
C. Thomas Howell is Mike Ryan, a high school guy who is hopelessly in love with the popular, pretty girl, Deborah (Kelly Preston). Only, he can’t tell her in person how he feels about her, especially with her tough college boyfriend, Steve (played by Scott McGinnis). Mike confides in Toni (Lori Laughlin), his best friend, instead about how much he loves Deborah.
But, Mike gets the bold idea to write his dream girl a love letter. He doesn’t have the courage to give it to Deborah, let alone sign it. So, he gives it to Toni, who can tell that with writing like Mike’s, he doesn’t stand a chance of making an impression with Deborah. She’s a girl with an ego, so it’s going to take a lot to impress her. She revises his letter and passes it on. And now Deborah has fallen in love with someone who doesn’t exist. Of course, she likes Mike, but she only likes him based on what she has read in the revised letters. In the meantime, Toni wishes Mike would get real and realize that Deborah is no kind of girl for him because she’s so insincere and all of that. She’s worried about appearances more than anything else. And slowly, Mike starts to realize it, too. In that ‘Some Kind of Wonderful’ kind of way, he realizes that Toni really likes him, and what the heck, he likes her too.
Meanwhile, there’s trouble between Mike’s family and Deborah’s family as the letters start passing hands of the family members and the parents start suspecting that each other’s spouse wants to get involved in an affair just because of this dumb love letter. And they’re even willing to have a go because they suspect their own spouses of cheating. It’s all a major mistake and one entirely based on lack of trust in their relationships. The consequences are funny nonetheless.
As for the rest of the cast, there’s some funny moments with cocky Roger (Casey Seizmasko), who plays Mike’s other best friend and poor source of guidance about girls. You can also see a very young Corey Haim in his film debut as Mike’s younger punk brother. And, other members of Mike’s friends include Courtney Gains (‘Can’t Buy Me Love’) who is in so few scenes and many other familiar faces.
It’s good lazy fun even if the story isn’t anything new.
