Johnny Be Good is a film focused on highschool football star Johnny Walker (Anthony Michael Hall). Johnny is such a successful athlete that he was aggressively recruited by many colleges and universities. The schools offer him everything that he wants in life, such as girls, money, cars, and free lodging. His friend, Leo Wiggins (Robert Downey Jr.), frequently advises him to experience what each institution has to offer before making any decisions. However, his girlfriend Georgia (Uma Thurman) wants him to go to the same school that she is going to so that he can play football and get a great education under her watchful eye. Johnny's dilemma stems from the fact that every school, except for the one his girlfriend is going to, offers him a variety of perks, but he will disappoint his girlfriend if doesn't choose the same one as her. The film was directed by Bud Smith and produced by the Orion Pictures Corporation.
