"...Amusing and lively....IN THE MOOD glows in its three central performances..."
Description by OLDIES.com:
It's 1944 and Americans are in the mood for something to take their minds off the challenges of World War II -- something like a juicy sex scandal. At the same time, naive, 15-year-old Sonny Wisecarver (Patrick Dempsey) is in the mood for love with two attractive older women. And suddenly Sonny is grabbing headlines from Hitler in everybody's Daily Bugle.
Dempsey shows he was McDreamy from a very young age in this goofy, funny and wholly endearing comedy based on the true story of the teen who created a media frenzy as the Woo Woo Kid. Richly evocative of its era, In the Mood is also timeless in its big-hearted salute to romance in any era.
This teenage comedy for adults tells the true story of the unlikely hero the tabloids dubbed "The Woo Woo Kid." Husbands and the law couldn't quite approve of Wisecarver's antics with older women. But the older women couldn't resist.
Based on a true story about a 14-year-old kid who seduces two older women. The first to succumb to his charms is a 21-year old mother who he eventually marries. The second is a neighbor of his who he meets in a rather unusual way.
- "In the Mood" was the first directing effort from screenwriter Phil Alden Robinson.
