'C' Movie is 'A' In My Book
30 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Don't let the fact that despite Tim Carhart being the only actor with a known name in this movie fool you... it's hilarious! Low-budget, good plot and story, good acting, great comedy, and hot college chicks running around in bikinis, lingerie, or nothing at all!! WOOOHOOOOOO!!! Did I mention it's funny? Dude, I had to hunt this movie down, but now I have it ripped for my private collection! (The movie industry can thank me in the future.)Can't remember the lead actors name, but I don't think that matters. (Hope he doesn't read IMDb.) Carhart plays 'Studly', his friend who tries to get him 'laid'. Full of classic attempts (failures) to woo women. Elbow is Studly's teacher and the school janitor, and tries to help Pondo. He's a riot, but can't break the jinx. Watching the women at play and exercise makes want to jazzercize too... well, almost. Pretty good 80's soundtrack, too, with The Buzzcocks and Dream 6 (now Concrete Blonde, one of my favorite rock bands.) If you can find this movie on VHS, rent it and have a good laugh, great for watching with your girlfriend, too!
