A high-school gym teacher has big plans for the summer, but is forced to cancel them to teach a "bonehead" English class for misfit goof-off students. Fortunately, his unconventional brand of teaching fun field trips begins to connect with them, and even inspires ardor in some. Written by

The movie is notable for featuring a young Courtney Thorne-Smith who became famous later on, and because of this, now gets third billing on DVD covers for the movie, whereas on original theatrical movie posters this was not the case. See more »
After reading through the reviews on here to date, there's not a single bad one !
NO! WAY! Party all-the-time! Party all-the-time!
This film really is as cool as everyone says. Dated 80's stuff doesn't get in the way of great characters and sharp wit. If you've not seen it yet, rent it & marvel at the goriest sequence in a high school comedy ever - these people are PSYCHOPATHS !
Particular favs of mine are the 'I don't know anything' dream gag, the Rick Baker essay sequence and the 'War puts a man through many, many changes' gag from Dave. Top stuff.
