When lifelong friends Julie and Rosanna are electrocuted by an ancient Betamax VCR, they wake up as the main characters in their favorite 1980s teen movie.

How will they get back to reality... and do they really want to?

For Rosanna – eternal adolescent, reluctant single mom and frustrated artist – being zapped into an eighties teen movie is a dream come true. She’s the coolest girl in school with a hot, mysterious boyfriend, a doting father who’ll give her anything she wants and a scholarship to study art in Paris. Why would she ever want to leave?

For Julie – Miss Responsibility – this is her worst nightmare. She’s the sidekick in her own favorite movie and the boy of her dreams - Johnnie - is hopelessly, unrequitedly in love with Rosanna. Julie is determined to get back to reality.

But things start to change when Johnnie falls for Julie and offers her everything her real-life husband isn’t giving her; and Rosanna has to choose between her over-protective father, her 'perfect' boyfriend and her spoilt-brat real-life son.

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll learn to shotgun beer without blowing it out your nose.

Trapped in an 80s Teen Movie is a comedy fantasy about inter-dimensionality, parenthood, kidulthood and the lasting qualities of Twinkies.
