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 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.
