Ben, Larry, Alan, and Steve are about to graduate from college. They are terrified of the prospect of actually having to work hard for a living, so they come up with a plan to support themselves as graduate research students by getting a foundation grant to study sexuality in college-age women. But despite their success at getting paid to bed down pretty girls, the work-load becomes too great, so they open the "study" to businessmen who pay to participate. Only a small mind would call it prostitution, and only a pessimist would think it could backfire.... Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

If you have to choose between watching Buy and Cell or the Seniors, pick the seniors.

okay, this isn't close to the best low-budget 80's college movie, but i don't think it's all that bad- i think it's a wonderful satire on laisez faire capitalism, and, although not hilarious, it does has some snippits of clever dialogue in that bent. I don't know, compared to this s%#@ that comes out nowadays, I have to like it more.
