Starting a new tradition of sex comedy, T & A High School, five boys meet in the detention room thanks to the evil virgin princess Purity Busch. RICK - dressed as a doctor and gave breast exams to the high school new comers. BRENT - sexually teased Purity in French class. MELVIN - caught masturbating in the meat locker. HOWIE - rearranged the mirrors in order to see up the skirts of cheerleaders after practice. And TIM - tricked into entering the girls washroom. Each one fooled by Purity, they want revenge. Each one makes a pact to deflower the virgin, but all have failed. Their only chance is to work together with others of the school to get her at the homecoming game. Written by Wallace Entertainment

Brilliant!
24 June 1999 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

As a classy movie this one rates a 0 - but as a fun frolicking teenage sex romp it is unquestionably a 10! I would have to say that this is a classic of the genre and I must agree with the other comments that have been made here (and totally disagree with Leonard Maltin). If you like this type of raucous fluff and you're into a titty movie that isn't a full-on porno, this just might be what you're after. They definitely don't make them like this anymore, pity really, they were lots of fun and every boy's dream.
