No Small Affair is an okay coming-of-age romance [from a screen story by Charles Bolt] in which the believability of the leading characters far outweighs that of many of the situations in which the script places them.

Film is set in San Francisco and has Jon Cryer as a 16-year-old who’s precocious in still photography but not much else, being difficult socially and unresponsive to girls his own age.

By chance, he snaps a shot of a sharp looking gal (Demi Moore) by the waterfront and, by chance again, he finds her singing in a seedy North Beach nightspot. In a selfless effort to give her sluggish career a boost, he spends his entire life savings and gets her photo placed on top of 175 SF taxicabs.

Ultimately, she is invited to LA by a record company and, before she leaves, the inevitable occurs.
