In the tradition of other brat pack movies such as St. Elmo's Fire, The Breakfast Club, and the Outsiders and featuring some of the hottest of Hollywood's young actors, Love Sucks highlights the humorous problems of life and love faced by the outwardly cool but inwardly troubled American teens. After leaving college last summer heart-breaker Phil Fazzulo and high school jock Dennis Nolan find their high school dreams shattered when they end up tossing pizza dough for a living. Facing a stream of familiar faces they find themselves constantly having to duck out of sight or invent a seemingly endless stream of ridiculous excuses to disguise their total lack of achievement, only serving to reinforce their humiliation and the realisation that their lives have remained virtually unchanged. They need excitement and purpose in their lives, but when they are left in sole charge of Sal's Pizza Palace, events take a sudden change for the worse and the excitement and purpose they crave finally arrives, but in a very unwanted fashion. In the tradition of all failed college students there can only be one solution? Obviously a party will solve all their financial, career and romantic problems! Or will it?... and ultimately they will discover that Love Sucks!
