Bad Acting + No Budget + 1970's = Great Movie
19 June 2001 | by (Connecticut, USA) – See all my reviews

Anybody who use to watch USA Network's show UP ALL NIGHT in the late 1980's has probably seen this movie. I recently had the fortune of getting an original VHS copy.

This is a must see for anybody looking for a cheesy movie about teenagers who drive vans and pick-ups, hang out at the beach, skateboard at the Boogie Bowl and party at the lake. The story revolves around a new girl at school and the tension she causes when the local stud falls for her. The characters are completely addicted to using the phrase "shine it" and the best line of the movie comes from a tuff chick who after being put down emphatically says "I'm Jill, Fly Me!".

Directed by Southern skin flick legend Bethel Buckalew. Summer School does not appear to be the original title but a new name for the video release. After reading a review for Buckalew's film "Mag Wheels" they are the same movie and this is probably the original title.
