The wrong reputation can get you in a lot of trouble. As the adorably mischievous Jane Kinney on The Worst Night of Your Life, a 1987 episode of 21 Jump Street, the always eclectic, truly awesome Lezlie Deane (Freddy’s Dead, 976-Evil) discovers it can, also, get you a really hot date!
Wrongly accused of some sparky damage at her all girls school, Kinney-Deane finds a champion in compassionate series regular Hoffs (Holly Robinson Peete) who gets her hooked up with Johnny Depp’s Tom for a night of awkward, fiery prom mayhem. Who wants to be the (slightly) bad girl, now?
Besides, Deane’s endearing appearance, this episode also boasts a surprisingly acidic turn from the (normally) sweet Kerry Remsen. Remsen, best known to terror fiends as monster bait in such flicks as Pumpkinhead, Ghoulies II and Appointment with Fear, gives it her all here as the nasty Tracy, a vixen that none of the clean cut detectives on this seminal series would have ever wanted to mess with.
