Storyline

Pondo Sinatra is a college boy with a problem: women will have nothing to do with him. It's not that he was raised on a chicken farm and, literally, came to school on the back of a turnip truck. It's not that he is a virgin and jinxed, and every move he makes around a woman backfires. The problem is that god and heaven have set themselves against Pondo loosing his virginity. That is until Pondo discovers the secret formula to the most powerful aphrodisiac in the world and becomes....... "The Party Animal"! Written by Ernest B. <ernest@bellsouth.net>

The Greatest Soundtrack Ever!!
17 September 2004 | by (Bloomington, IL) – See all my reviews

I love this film and love the soundtrack. It is definitely one of the better sex comedies of the 80s(my personal favorite). One of the things that make this film so special is the performance of Matthew Causey as Pondo Sinatra. Causey takes what could have been just another throw away character and makes Sinatra very memorable, it is too bad we have not seen more from Causey. The soundtrack is loaded with one hit after another. My friends and I have lots of quotes from this one we enjoy to throw at each other. The conversation between Pondo and Elbow is priceless. I also would like to thank Mr. Filthy McNasty for his help on this film!
