Country-girl, Gugino meets rock 'n' roller, surfer-dude (comedian Pauly Shore) while attending college in California; they fall in love (for reasons that remain a mystery to the audience) and she brings him back to the farm to meet his future in-laws. Shore spends most of the film's running-time making animal noises and pronouncing words in a unconventional manner because the writers couldn't be bothered to come up with any real jokes.
Best teen romance ever

This is really just the sweetest movie. John Cusack is totally adorable as the best high school boyfriend ever. It's funny and romantic and very real. Lloyd's speech at the dinner table about he wants to do (or not do) for a living is classic. I always have a smile on my face when this movie ends. Run out and rent it if you haven't seen it yet.
If you are not a Shakespeare fan, or if you have no interest in how movies ideas are created, then you wouldn't know that this movie is based off William Shakespeare's play "Taming Of The Shrew." I think the move does a really good job capturing WS ideas and vision not to mention it offers a dummied down version of the actual play for people like me who hate iambic pentameter.
