Jana Lund
3 December 1998 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

Jana Lund is probably the best reason for seeing this film. She's gorgeous and exciting. And Yvonne Lime is adorable. The first ten minutes or so are a riot, with a classroom scene that must have inspired John Waters for his classroom scene in "Female Trouble." The rest of it goes downhill and lacks any credible "teenage" reality. Also Jana unfortunately gets killed off halfway through the film.
