Teenagers. It doesn't matter what era: Arguing over which song on the hit parade is the dreamiest, surviving their parents, or finding a job that doesn't suck big-time.

Oh, and returning the B-52 bomber you took for a test spin, stopping World War III, and saving the planet from atomic zombie chickens flooding out of cobalt-contaminated Las Vegas.

It's just another weekend for four ungraceful teens hired to set up domestic survival simulations, aka atomic dummies, during 1950s civil defense atom bomb tests.

The characters resemble "The Three Stooges" (except with four), without most of the eye-poking violence (though personally I love that stuff), set to a soundtrack from "American Graffiti". The leads are the two girls, who are only "slightly" less silly than their two boyfriends. In fact, if it weren't a different era, you might also say these characters would get along just fine with "Napoleon Dynamite".
