Pedigreed star Hanks (son of Tom) enters the world of leading men alongside character-meister Black in this pleasant buddy comedy. Equally credible Tinseltown offspring continue aplenty with love-interest Fisk (daughter of Sissy Spacek and Jake Fisk) and director Jake Kasdan (son of Lawrence). Typical Orange County, California teen Shaun Brumder trades his surf board for a pen when he accidentally discovers the joys of literature via a Marcus Skinner (an uncredited Kline) novel on the beach. Determined to study under Skinner at Stanford, Brumder is bummed when the wrong test scores are submitted to the college who summarily rejects him. Enter stoner brother Lance, to help him straighten everything out. Dynamic comedy with character development of a surprisingly sophisticated nature for this type of film.
