A sex survey on campus causes havoc.
6 May 2001 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

This movie has no real redeeming qualities. It is a silly mess. And how they got some of these stars to even do this thing is a mind bender. But then again the cast is not what you call a stellar cast. Steve Allen is a sociology professor with a special project he would like to complete before getting ran out of town. He is conducting a survey that is 20% sexual questions, but the towns people fear he is corrupting their community college students. Jane Meadows is a reporter trying to do a story on the professor accused of hanky panky with some of his students.

Since I am not and never have been a Steve Allen fan, the only reason I watched this was for singer Conway Twitty. I have always liked Twitty when he was a rock 'n' roller. He was not too much of a disappointment, but he only had a few lines and a couple of scenes. And even he had to be ashamed of the song he sang. Also in the cast is Mamie Van Doren. She was in top form playing Twitty's girl. A sexpot is a sexpot, how can I complain?

Also in this silly romp are: Mickey Shaughnessy, Elisha Cook Jr.,Walter Winchell, Rocky Marciano and Cathy Crosby.
