Multi-racial teen offender...
31 March 2011 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Straight-laced Young Miss into gymnastics may have to sex-up her act in order to compete with the jiggly cheerleaders at Camp Beaver View, a summer spot for hormone-crazed kids which comes complete with a 'Beaverteria'. John Karlen shamefacedly heads up an awkward cast of teenage no-names in this "Porky's"/"Flashdance"/"Footloose" hybrid (one with an overlay of summer camp pranks which go back years, if not decades). Our heroine gets klutzy around cute guys, signaling to us that she's a virgin, while down at the local sleaze-spot two skinny boys dance with a trampy chick on-stage in a pantomime of ménage à trois (which is curiously accepted quite readily by the yuppie-looking youths in the audience). Not very imaginative, and not the least bit amusing, this must have been an embarrassment for 20th Century-Fox--not to mention the bare-breasted girls on-screen whose bodies are relentlessly exploited for the sake of sniggering juveniles and underage girl-peepers. * from ****
