College, for many is an eye opening experience. It is often the first time we are away from the comforts of home and family. But it is also the opportunity to grow and find out who you really are and what you want out of life.
In Son In Law (1993), Rebecca Warner (Carla Gugino) is the all American girl from a small town in the midwest. Her choice for college is a school in Los Angeles. Her first few weeks are rocky, until she meets Crawl (Pauly Shore), who helps her integrate into college life. Feeling sorry that Crawl has nowhere to go during Thanksgiving, Rebecca invites him home. When conservative small town America meets Los Angeles party animal Crawl, Rebecca, her family and her small town will never be the same.
This movie is very early 90’s. But it does not feel that dated because anyone who has gone away to college for the first time understands the anxiety that comes with the experience.
Do I recommend it? Why not?
