Review - Can't Buy Me Love

A lame movie that came from Netflix, although neither of us can remember ordering it. The acting was really poor, but there was one funny part. Ronald is taking one of the popular girls to a dance. The problem is that he doesn't know how. His kid brother turns on a PBS special on the "African Anteater Ritual" and tells him it's the spotlight dance from Dance Fever. Ronald starts doing it at the dance that night and all the cool kids follow along. Only Ronald's old nerd friends, sitting on the sidelines, recognize it from watching PBS.
