I need some help in finding this movie: it's a comedy from the 90s about a young guy (17-ish) who takes the car of a family member without permission.

I know that the main character is a quite well known actor, but can't remember who. The movie was mostly about the ride with the car and getting it back home. Some guys crash into his car and he, along with a friend or 2, has to fix it and get it home.

I think i have watched this film but also forgot the name. – Ankit Sharma Aug 29 '13 at 7:43
Initially made me think of Ferris Bueller's Day Off but it was made in 1986. – Riain McAtamney Aug 29 '13 at 8:03
Sorry, but it's not Sex Drive. The movie could be a little older, I don't know the exact date, but it's not Ferris Bueller's Day Off( this is not based on a car ride). – pancake Aug 29 '13 at 8:48
@sunshine i think you have already ask this earlier… which got deleted because of inactive account – Ankit Sharma Aug 29 '13 at 11:31

Is it Risky Business. Description looks similar and it also have Tom Cruise as lead (And he is obvious famous) and its came in 1983, very near to 90's.

Borrowed from Paulster2's answer form this deleted question.

Thought this, too, but doesn't fit so good, I think. Still, worth a try. Yet when thinking about it, if not seeing the description as describing the whole movie, it fits quite well. – Napoleon Wilson Aug 29 '13 at 11:59
Yes, I asked this question a few days ago, I didn't know it would get deleted. This was the answer I got, but it's not the movie I'm looking for. I looked it up and the best evidence is that the car gets into a lake in Risky Business. Here is a piece of info that I am not very sure of(that's why I didn't include it in the description): The guy arrives in a town where the girlfriend of one of his friend lives. Here they find a mechanic and have to get the money needed to fix the car. – pancake Aug 29 '13 at 12:27

Could it be License to Drive, starring the Coreys?

If you can add a few details why you think this may be the answer instead of just linking off to another site, it would greatly improve your answer. – TylerShads Aug 29 '13 at 14:47
I've thought of this movie, but after watching the trailer and reading the resume I have to say that it's not it. However, thanks for your help! – pancake Aug 29 '13 at 15:13
