    Synopsis


    Secret Admirer
    Produced at the height of the teen sex comedy cinema craze in the mid-1980s, Secret Admirer (1985) was the directorial debut of David Greenwalt, who would later move from screwball comedy to horror with the television series The X-Files, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel. C. Thomas Howell stars as Michael Ryan, a high school student who receives an anonymous love note in his locker. Hoping that it's from Deborah Ann Fimple (Kelly Preston), a gorgeous but air-headed classmate who only dates college boys, Michael hatches a scheme with Toni (Lori Loughlin), who is friendly with both him and Deborah, to write her back. What Michael doesn't know, however is that the first letter was really from Toni, who has more than friendship in mind. In the meantime, the unsigned missives fall into the wrong hands, leading Michael's mother, Connie (Dee Wallace-Stone) to believe that her husband George (Cliff De Young) is having an affair with his night school teacher, Elizabeth (Leigh Taylor-Young), who is none other than Deborah's mother. George had better watch his back, however, as Elizabeth's husband is Lieutenant Lou Fimple (Fred Ward), a tough cop who's having a very bad week. As the romantic complications pile up, Toni becomes Michael's Cyrano de Bergerac, penning his letters but pining for him as he gets closer to winning Deborah over. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

      I picked this up when it was on sale for $10.99 + free shipping. Blu-rays from Olive Films can be pricey. It is a solid looking release but not reference quality. There are no extras just the movie (sorry I don't count the theatrical trailer as an extra). Great 80's movie. Recommended if the price is right

      Love 80's comedies, romances, the brat-pack films? Then this movie is for you. Sweet, but with it's two feet on the ground, Secret Admirer is sure to charm. Lori Loughlin never became a mega star, but this film will make you think she deserved to be one.

      Secret Admirer has never looked as good as it does on this blu-ray release. Olive Films is doing a great job of putting out good film like transfers of these lesser known cult films. Not much in the extras department, but still the best way out there to watch this movie.

      Hadnt seen this in years and when it was finally announced for blu ray released naturally I was stoked.The almost $30 price tag elsewhere made it unpalatable to purchase but when I saw BB had it for super low 12.99 I jumped right in.

      I recommend buying this rare 80's romcom if you can get it in it's blu ray version at a bargain price. The last time I looked the DVD version could only be purchased for big bucks, and the blu ray transfer is an improvement over the DVD.
