Come on, Its not that bad!
10 February 2004 | by (Sydney Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was in my early teen's & I thought it rocked! Ok the cartoon beginning is quite bad but over all the (lack of) story line was quite fun. Beautiful rich girls at a boarding school getting into all kinds of mischief eg: Getting back at the school snob, Getting the virgin laid, Breaking the boys out of prison, Getting the evil teacher sacked & Snagging the richest boy at school. Its kinda like a Porky's for girls accept the girls are calling all the shots & there's no nudity in this movie *sigh* but those 80's fashions alone are worth seeing. I give it 7 out of 10
