Just plain awful!
15 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

The cover promises us a comedy similar to 'porky's', but it is nothing like it! There does not appear to be any plot or point to this junk of a movie! Girls are at an academy! *yawn* They get up to no raunchy business, there are no sex jokes, no dirty humour and nothing even remotely like porky's! This has to be one of the worst films ever made! Avoid!
