    Yet Another late 80s early 90s title question...
    This one was a movie where a girl and I believe her father wind up stranded at a strange trailer park in the desert because their car breaks down or something of the sort. The teenage girl befriends a couple of guys, one who is a "bad boy" type and one is sort of nerdy. I remember the nerd had a bunch of TVs in this place near a sattellite dish where he later in the movie falls to his death. I believe he had lightish colored curly hair and freckles and looked, in my memory, like the nerd in Breakfast Club. I believe its possible that some of the same people were in this movie, but I could be completely wrong since I just watched Breakfast club and its probably clouding my judgement. :) So at the end the girl and her dad are going to leave or something and all this stuff starts to happen to sabbotage them and she believes that it's the "bad boy" (whom I believe was dark haired) because he tried to feel her up while they were swimming in a lake or something. It turns out that it was the dork and he starts to chase her and the "bad boy" helps her get away and the dorky kid winds up falling to his death on what I think was a white mesh satellite dish type thing. I saw the movie probably 6 or 7 years ago and it came on like at 2 or 3 in the morning on TNT or USA or a channel like that. Any help would be great...


    P.S. I know this is no help but its possible that I am thinking of two separate movies, but both would be around the same time, although I'm almost positive it's one single movie. I'm only 20, so I don't remember far enough back to when it came out, only saw it once or twice on TV. :p

    Finally figured it out...
    Well I answered my own question. :) I finally remember, and I can't believe I didn't sooner, that it had Drew Barrymoore in it and the title was Far From Home (found on IMDB) in case anyone cares.
