The late Corey Haim and his on & off screen friend Corey Feldman star in this 1988 comedy which gets a UK DVD release courtesy of Second Sight.
Les (Haim) sees his driving licence as a ticket to freedom so he is devastated when he fails the test. Such is his shame that he can’t admit the failure and soon decides to go a night out driving to impress his friends and the gorgeous Mercedes (Heather Graham).
What could possibly go wrong?
I had fond memories of this one as I was a fan of the two Coreys and despite a shaky start it manages to retain much of its charm.
Haim is great as the underachieving Les and Feldman provides good support along with Richard Masur and Carol Kane as Les’ parents.
For good nostalgic fun and a few laugh out loud moments check it out.
License To Drive is available on DVD in the UK from 30th July 2012.
