Can’t Buy Me Love (1987) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi! Patrick Dempsey “No Talent” Agency circa late 80s, how may I destroy your childhood memories today?

oh, you say you have a role for a sex crazed high school senior or college freshman who is kind of dorky but the ladies find him dreamy despite his low social status and penchant for low paying jobs like mowing lawns and delivering pizza?

Yeah we got those here. We got a whole shit can of those here. We shave them once a day and anything below the eyebrows gets a waxing. The ladies love it! Young and old.

Well here is as an inappropriate time as any to talk about money. Dempsey is going to need somewhere between .35 cents and 200 dollars for his services. You can pay that in cash or hats.

While, money can’t buy you love, hats can buy you a Dempsey.

Yes we take Neiman Marcus and Sam Goody’s. I mean it is the late 80s after all and Goody Got It.

Severe.

Are all teenagers in movies hairless? I feel like we were a lot hairier in my hometown.

She shared her poetry with Ronnie. He is friend-zoned.

If she can charge so much on her mom’s card why did she take Ronald’s money. Couldn’t she just have bought another suede suit on her mom’s card and pretended like it was something else.
