Pretty terrible
27 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I caught this on cable back in the late 1980s. I was tired after studying for exams all day and thought that a silly sex comedy would be just what I needed to unwind. After about 30 minutes of this I was actually considering of going back to studying! It would have been a lot less painful than this:) Boring "comedy" of an obnoxious college student (played by an actor who was 29 at the time--and looked it) joining a film class and falling for the wrong girl while totally ignoring the sweet nice girl who's truly in love with him. The plot is old hat but it could have worked if they had a fresh take or spin on it. Unfortunately they didn't. The acting is OK but the jokes are lame and the plot is VERY predictable. If you're hoping for nudity of sex forget it. There's none here. No sex, nudity or laughs. Skip it.
