Storyline

Dr. Ackerman, the biology teacher at the local college, meets with an untimely demise when chased by a UFO. Wesley, one of his students, is having trouble attracting women. That all changes when bombshell Ms. Xenobia takes over Ackerman's class and persuades Wesley to participate in some vitamin research she and her assistant Drax are conducting. Suddenly Wesley has become very desirable, despite the fleshy antenna that grows out of his head during excitement. His newfound success threatens to alienate the girl he really cares about (Leeanne), and Xenobia's motives may have something to do with the fact that she is not of this earth.

This doctor should be struck off the medical list
25 April 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Some films are pure entertainment, others make you think and ponder about the meaning of life, or laugh and make you feel good to be alive and some are just dull and boring. Then there are films like this one, which are just an insult to the intelligence. Not even 'so bad it's good,' just without any redeeming value.

The level of plot and story and the alleged comedy would only appeal to the under 12's but the subject matter is obviously aimed at an older market and the nudity towards young men with their hormones racing. Making it a mess for all of the above.

I assumed at first the film had been made at the height of the late 70's glam-soft rock of that era but was surprised that it was made almost a decade later. If as 'punk' music had never happened and these college kids were stuck in some strange time warp where groups like Van Halen or people like Meatloaf were on the cutting edge of radical music. I wonder if any of the people involved in making this had ever actually met any High School teenagers? The lead character goes from been a geek overnight into a 'Fonzie' type who ends up fronting a rock band who are so hardcore that he gels his hair up, takes his shirt off and bares his chest. Oh, that rock & roll madness!

Think it says a lot about the attitude of this film, when the parents meet the other members of the band for dinner. They have long hair and tattoos and their drummer is a black man! Is that the living end or what?? Actually, I could never believe a real black guy would ever get involved with these sad bunch of losers and their crappy music.

Offensive on all fronts to women and everybody really. I can't really bring myself to go into the plot, 'young geek becomes a babe magnet but finds true love and his real calling in music.'

If you want to see that done pretty well, rent or buy the movie 'Grease,' give this sub-'Porkies' garbage a miss.
