Eddie and the Cruisers II: Eddie Lives! (1989) (part 9 of 12)
Hey, look, they paid Larry King for two scenes! He’s now interviewing Dennis Miller Guy, who says Satin Records is now offering a quarter million for proof Eddie Wilson lives. Larry, sharp guy that he is, tells Dennis this sounds like a publicity stunt, but Dennis denies this. I’m sure if we pan down, we’ll see his fingers are crossed, too.
Cut to the two vans pulling up at a college somewhere. Over at the orange van, Charlie AKA Shirtless Drummer kicks the passenger door open with both feet [!] and then apologizes to it [?]. The young band members flirt with passing college girls, while Eddie and Diane stand around looking chaperonish. The gig they’re performing at is called “Spring Break Blowout”, which sounds like a glorified prom (but hey, even Marvin Berry did proms).
