Of all the major cast members, each portraying a high school junior or senior, only John Friedrich was under the age of 20 at the time of production. In fact, most of the primary actors and actresses playing students were well into their twenties when filming commenced, with Lee Purcell already 30 years of age and Tim Matheson nearly 30.

This movie is a little known film about a high school election. It's got some comedy, a little drama and a little romance, with Beach Boys-esque music (most of it was composed by Mike Love) It has Bruno Kirby, as Bobby DeVito, who will stop at nothing to see that Christine Alexander (Lee Purcell) doesn't win. They once dated, and now he wants to help an unknown candidate named Darryl Fitzgerald run against Christine. Meanwhile, Christine is having problems with her boyfriend and Darryl and Bobby's sister, Donna start to fall in love, too! Great hijinx and cool music make this one cool movie, which is worth seeking out, as it has never been released on video.
