A movie trivia question

OK kids, get out your thinking caps.

I have a movie trivia question and I'm stumped. I've searched LJ but can't seem to find a good movie trivia community (hmmm ... maybe it's time to start one), so I'm gonna have to post this here and hope that someone who reads my page will have an answer.

Here goes:

There was a movie in the late 1970s or early 1980s. It was a comedy, and the basic premise was that some guy (or maybe two guys?) accidentally rips out the butt of his jeans while he's out in public (by sitting on wet paint? I forget). He's mortified, but somehow people see the jeans, think they're cool, and it becomes the hot, new fad.

OK, so who knows what this movie was called? unixd0rk and I spent far too long googling various plot points but finding nothing. I think it was a one word title -- something like "Divine" -- but my searches of IMDb have turned up nothing.

Anyone?

So Fine. I found it without searching; I knew the title. How sad is that?

I cannot believe that not one but TWO people on my friends list knew the answer to this question off the tops of their heads. Yaay! Now if only somebody knew where I could download or rent it ...

the movie was called So Fine and starred Ryan O'Neal.

Wow. You and scarybaldguy BOTH knew the answer to the question ... I'm stunned that I even know two people who would remember that that movie even existed, let alone know what it was called.

Ever seen it? Because now I really want to ...
