The issue of popularity, specifically amongst the high school set, is dramatized. Jerry occasionally goes on dates with Ginny, who goes on "sitting in parked cars" dates with many boys, which makes Jerry feel less special. When Ginny comes by and wants to sit with the gang, they brush her off. Is she popular because she goes on these dates, or is the exact opposite the truth? Jerry is also attracted to the new girl in school, Caroline. He can't verbalize why he likes her, but all in the gang, including the girls, invite her to sit with them. But if Caroline is popular, it means that others, like Wally, are interested also in dating her. Jerry and Wally take two different approaches in asking Caroline on a date, with two different results based on their consideration of her feelings. Written by Huggo

funny piece of teen advice
26 October 2004 | by (Maidstone, Kent, England) – See all my reviews

This is hilarious stuff! Poor old Ginny. She tries so hard to be popular by 'parking' with the boys in their cars - but where does it get her?

Do you think this piece is possibly about underage sex?!

The good girl is actually the most annoying of the two - far too smug. But the dating scenario is very insightful and realistic. O.k, I'm being sarcastic now! Considering I'm from England where we don't really do the dating thing, this is pure class. Wooden acting, authoritive male voice over, 2.4 family, typical 1950s suburban white middle classes, ice skating parties, high school canteen - it all adds up to a nice piece of kitsch Americana. Obviously intended to be taken seriously (much in the same way as 'Reefer madness')it is now, in the light of contemporary cultural context, very funny and entertaining.

Definitely worth a look!
