Rating: 2/5 -- Miss Potts may well be a gifted comedienne, but Mr. Robbins never lets her relax enough for the talent to show. Too often, he strains his actors' enthusiasm to the breaking point.

Rating: 2/4 -- Hamill has jokingly suggested that perhaps the movie would have done better had it been named Car Wars; he's probably not wrong. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- All in all a very funny movie with enough solid, believable story to take it beyond the realm of teenage summer fare. Full Review
As long as one doesn't demand too much of it, Corvette Summer delivers a very pleasant two hours of escape. Full Review
One of Hollywood's better 'growing up' movies. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Works best as a distant memory; trust me on this.
Description by OLDIES.com:
Car-brained Kenny (Mark Hamill) trails a Corvette that's mysteriously boosted after his high-school shop class restores it to perfection. The trail leads to Fun Capital, USA, and a ditzy diversion (Annie Potts) whose dream is to become a hooker. This damsel in distress needs a white knight on a candy-apple, metal-flake, superior-mags, mercury-tubes steed. Both are in for a summer they'll never forget.
