Storyline

18-year-old Sean's first summer after completing high school is much spent with 28-year-old teacher Diane, whose husband is too often motorcycle-racing instead of with her. Wacko Ralph also has "the hots" for Diane; and it doesn't help that Sean was with Ralph's younger brother, Lou, when Lou died. Written by Kim Williams <KDWms@webtv.net>

Goofs

The lunch time pool scene at Sean's place. The shadows constantly change as the scene continues. The start has radiant sunlight showering Diane and Sean. As the camera cuts to a different angle, they are covered in shade. Move back to the original angle, all sun again. Continues for a while until the end of the scene. The same can be noticed on the water of the pool. First shot shows it bathed in sun. As Bonnie gets out of the pool, it is mostly shade. See more »

Quotes

Angel Rocks!
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Agree with most of the posts that it is a cheesy production, however Angel is the bomb!! She is the best. I first became aware of her via "Prime Cut" with the great Lee Marvin. She has a very natural approach and it really shows in this flick. In "Cut" she played a trophy wife, however still hot for Lee and dressed the part. As for this flick, I also think that Med Flory played a funny role. I love drive in flicks of the 70's (about the time I was hitting them) and this one and PC are two of the best. It's weird, 30 plus years later and I'm sitting at the edge of my seat waiting for Angel to unleash the rack!! Got it on DVD. Not sure what that other reviewer was talking about re: a rain fall love scene. I don't remember if that was in the original theatrical release, however I do know that it is not on the DVD. I will pick up other flicks by Angel and I wish I knew what she was doing now. It appears as if she stopped working around '91.
