It's all a bum rap for "THE POM POM GIRLS"...
13 December 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You've seen it all before and several times since, the atypical teeny-bop sex romp, that's less filling... but, tastes great. Recently, I was in one of those "Hey, I wanna see some Bobby Carradine action, circa '76" moods... so, I rented this, and actually enjoyed it.

Since 1976 was such a damned good year, I like to re-live it, as much as possible, and this film along with a headliner of "THE BOY IN THE PLASTIC BUBBLE" (the best "boy with immune deficiency syndrome and raging-hormones-to-boot" movie-of-the-week, ever), fit the bill, perfectly.

Like I said, I dug it. A pleasant little curiousity from an era when the drive-in was in full swing. The film's not great, mind you, but if you are a fan of Robert Carradine, you will enjoy seeing him in one of his first leading roles. Joseph Ruben (who also made "JOYRIDE" with Carradine, the next year for American-International), wrote and directed this film, years before he tread cult status with "DREAMSCAPE", or later fame with films like "SLEEPING WITH THE ENEMY". James Gammon, who is best recognized from his role as the coach in the "MAJOR LEAGUE" films, appears here as the high school football coach.

I will say this... the "lunchbreak duel" sequence is brilliant. A great piece of comedy.

All around, this is great late nite fare... it did the trick for me! And, when you're done with this, pop in "THE SENIORS" with Dennis Quaid and Priscilla Barnes, for even more "bang for your buck"... or, you can save a buck, by getting to know me, becoming my close personal friend, and rubbing me the right way, until I eventually cave in and let you borrow my copy! This could take anywhere from 2-94 weeks for hand-written confirmation, of course. Just mull it over, a bit.

That's all for now, kids.

Reporting from my fingertips... -Nathan.
