In the scene where Father Michael McCarren is riding his motorcycle at the opening of the movie, there's a shot from behind him and it shows a car coming toward him on his left. When the next switches to a shot from in front of him, that car never passes. Instead, he passes a car on his right which is parked. See more »
Based on the cover, it looks like some 80s summer fun comedy flick with babes in bikinis, everyone in sun glasses, boom boxes on shoulders, a geeky side-kick...you get the picture. But it's not really any of those things. More than anything though, it's not a comedy. It's just this weird drama that revolves around a priest who's realizing he may be missing out on the good things in life. Meaning he's finally grown into his good looks and the hot babe of the college is all up on him.
The story is pretty much that simple. Does Father Mac keep it in his robes or does he invite her into the confessional for some extra praying? After School was a weird one. It doesn't do anything really that well. There aren't many scenes of humor, that are intentional anyways. The acting is pretty average all the way around, with all characters being kinda bland. The flick keeps you entertained solely on the end goal. Does the priest succumb to his animal desires? And the other big reason you keep watching is for those weirdass prehistoric scenes. There's just these flashbacks to prehistoric times that, I think, just show the current dilemma in a more symbolic and animalistic fashion. Pretty weird and kinda stupid, but at the same time, all the cave women in the prehistoric times were naked, and some were smoking hot. So you get a decent amount of nudity in this one, which is always a plus.
It's overall a pretty average flick, but with the nudity and the surprisingly interesting story, you're kept watching. If you find the priest/sex issue to be an intriguing issue, and if you like super silly 80s fashion, and a plethora of boobs, I'd say give this a shot.
