    Midnight Madness is a perfect example of how you can do great comedy without having to be overly raunchy, or disgusting, a trait that Hollywood would do well to emulate in current comedies. The teams are all stereotypes but the fun factor is ENORMOUS! Is it realistic? Of course not, but as in other films like it from the same time frame, the joy is in over the top exaggerated situations. Leon's clues are clever, and clever usually isn't a word to be used in conjunction with a college screwball comedy. You get the feeling early in the film that Michael J Fox's role as Scott may have originally been smaller but somebody got smart and gave him more to do to further develop the character and provide some interesting twists. It's super fun seeing Paul Ruebens in cowboy gear as the pinball arcade manager. The pinball arcade war is pretty ridiculous too and while it's unnecessary to the plot of the film, you can't help but love the exuberant energy and slapstick foolishness of it. Cheesy music is predominant in the movie but you'll have a tough time getting the incredibly catchy disco theme song 'Midnight Madness' out of your head. So which team won? Don't look at me because I'm not telling. See it for yourself if you've got a couple hours to laugh and I mean laugh A LOT. It's been a long time since I last saw Midnight Madness, but the wait was worth it.
