Drive Me Crazy, a not-completely-dumb flick about two lovelorn high schoolers who fake couplehood to spite the dream dates who’ve dissed them, harks back to the lesser achievements of the genre’s golden age — more ”Pretty in Pink” than ”The Breakfast Club.”

Hart (”Sabrina, the Teenage Witch”), making her starring feature debut, exhibits a Ringwaldian grasp of the burdens of being ”in,” while Grenier is a soulful rebel in the Andrew McCarthy mold. And despite ”Crazy”’s Britney Spears- and Backstreet Boys-laced soundtrack, it’s REO Speedwagon’s ’80s anthem, ”Keep on Loving You,” that rocks out the movie’s ”Sixteen Candles”-worthy ending, in which the right people hook up at the big dance. All that’s missing is Anthony Michael Hall.
