It's the last day of school at a high school in a small town in Texas in 1976. The upperclassmen are hazing the incoming freshmen, and everyone is trying to get stoned, drunk, or laid, even the football players that signed a pledge not to. Written by

While filming in Texas, Milla Jovovich (Michelle) and Shawn Andrews (Kevin Pickford) eloped to Las Vegas and got married. However, Jovovich was only 16 or 17 years old at that time, and her mother had the marriage annulled. It is further interesting that Milla's role in the immediately previous film she is credited for, Chaplin (1992), she portrayed an underage woman who married Charles Chaplin, who was subsequently put on trial for statutory rape.

I was born in 1975 so I sort of understand that people like this film as a travel back in time, but as a story, it sucks. The fact is: there is no story. None whatsoever. Apart from the beating of the freshmen(which I've never experienced), I've been to better and more interesting parties than the one in this film, and I've never thought that those parties where film material. Style over substance all the way. The best thing about is the music, but I find it hard to believe that in 1976, they only played songs that were later to become classics. I guess they also played songs that were forgotten as well.
And it is not a comedy.
