Diane Franklin ("Karen") the lead actress is def in her left ear. Which is why you see her walk very briefly with her moped & by it but to never ride it. When you're in any way hearing impaired it messes with your balance to where riding a bicycle or a moped or motor bike is impossible. She told him this while on set. See more »
In the scene mid-movie when Rick asks Gary for the key to his grandma's house in the stairwell at school, a dark haired guy in a light blue shirt walks down the stairs on the left side and cuts in front of them at the beginning of the scene. Right at the end of the scene, this same guy walks past them down the stairs again in the same direction. See more »
I saw this in a theatre back in 1982. I expected a stupid T&A movie. That's not what I got.
It's basically about three teenage boys trying to have sex. We get the expected sex jokes and scenes--but, for once, they're actually pretty funny!
Yeah, they're stupid but I enjoyed them anyways. Also, there was a surprising amount of male nudity.
Then the movie, about halfway through, takes a sudden dramatic turn as one of the boys (winningly played by Lawrence Monoson) falls in love with a girl. Then the jokes stop and things get very dark. I'm not going to give away what happens but I was very surprised at the sudden turn in events. The movie brings up some very important subjects and treats them realistically and with intelligence. And it has a real heart-breaking ending.
I'm giving this a 10 because this is probably one of the best teen sex comedy/dramas ever made. It mixes fantasy and realism together and works! What more can you ask for? Also it has a GREAT soundtrack.
