Storyline

A teenage boy that had early sexual encounters is having trouble finding them now, and spends a lot of time fantasizing about the women he knows. When a beautiful new girl comes to town, he makes a bet with the other guys that he can get her into bed within 10 days. His chief rival stacks the deck, though, by threatening to expose the new girl's sordid past (she was wrongly accused of being involved in an orgy at her previous school) if she sleeps with our hero. Confused about his situation, the boy seeks counsel from the sexy older woman across the street, and she helps him come to terms with his predicament. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

great sex comedy
2 November 2002 | by (London,Ontario) – See all my reviews

Okay, maybe this is no American Pie but this movie does have it's moments. Chris, the lead character is likable and beth, the new girl at school he lusts over is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful moments in this film make up for the cheesy dialogue and music in this film. Sylvia Kristel once again delivers a very sensual performance as the slighty older woman across the street who gives Chris love advice. If you liked this movie check out Private Lessons, also with Kristel.
