For those old enough to remember: A young Lorenzo Lamas and Maureen McCormick (Marcia of the Brady Bunch) are two main characters.

It's not Vision Quest but it is still entertaining and reinforces some basic values.

Holy ****! I'd forgotten that. Hilarious! Was that the first time people realized that wrestling was a combat sport like no other? A presage of how wrestlers (who learned to hold their hands in front of their faces) would come to dominate MMA? Okay, probably not. But Travolta was funny!

In my mind, the two movies that best tie an intriguing plot to an incredible and on-point soundtrack are Vision Quest and Goodfellas. Then, there are the original Star Wars movies. But, it took me at least two in the series before I realized each main character had their own theme music. Of course, this doesn't count musicals (which wrestlers don't count anyways).

CHEERS!

Good point, and I would argue Top Gun is the best volleyball movie of all time.
