Christine (Phoebe Cates), a student at an exclusive all-girls private school, is in love with Jim, who attends an academy for boys nearby. Christine's arch rival Jordan also has her eye on Jim, and she is willing to do whatever she can to steal him away. Jim's uber-slob buddy Bubba is going with Betsy, Christine's cynical friend, though he would probably be unfaithful if any other woman were willing to get near him. Bubba and his pals sneak into the girls' school dressed in drag in hopes of reaching the Promised Land (better known as the women's shower room), while Christine and Jim run away together for the weekend, though their escapade isn't as romantic as they had hoped.

If you add up the nude shower scene, the nude horse-back riding, and a couple of other topless shots, at the most it adds up to seven minutes.
Of the 1980s movies, Porky's had all that and more. Private School tries to be a rip-off of Porky's and Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and it is a poor imitation of either of those two movies.
The ladies, including Phoebe Cates, Kathleen Wilhoite, and Betsey Russell, are great to watch, but they are only in the movie for about fifteen minutes.
The majority of this film is spent on the gross antics of the fat slob, Bubba, and his two pals, Matthew Modine and a little guy who is dressed like a girl. I honestly never watched this movie all the way to the end, as it is too retarded. So I have not figured out who some of the actors are. All I know is that they are awful. Matthew Modine was in one of his first roles here, and it is like watching kids learning to drive a car at the driving school. They are all awful.
The story itself is not original. Three losers dress up as girls to find out what the girl's private school is like. None of them remotely can pass as a girl. Bubba looks like he just got out of prison. He has a family resemblance to Al Lettieri,who played the bad guy in The Getaway and The Godfather movies. Just like Lettieri, Bubba has the personality of a pig, and the face of an ugly horse.
Private School is a good movie to watch if you can fast forward to the scenes with the girls, and avoid Bubba. If someone can edit this movie into a twenty minute short, it would be awesome.
