The best time of my high school years
20 June 2001 | by (San Diego Ca) – See all my reviews

My name is Arthur Johnson, and I was in the movie. I played the role of Kenny. It was a great film from beginning to the end. Even though special effects wasn't that great back then. But all the slob, mud, sand, and fire, we had to endure. I think was well worth it. Especially the huge cock roaches we had to battle in the classrooms. I'm glad I had that experience of doing that movie, because I am currently living in California, trying to revamp my acting career. Even though I am in a 14 yr drout. lol I don't think anybody who was in the movie is going to read this. Since it was in 1987, and filmed in Japan. A lot of people in the states never even heard about it. In american, the movie was called Drifting Classroom. I don't know why everybody post the Japanese translation. It was also an honor to work with Troy Donahue, and all my other high school classmates.
