Storyline

Sisters Janice and Carol are trying to decide which classes to take next semester. Janice wants to take home economics, which leaves Carol stunned. "Why home ec?" she asks. Carol proceeds to take her to Miss Jenkins, the home ec teacher, who explains the virtues of learning cooking, sewing, and shopping ("present-day textiles cannot be judged with confidence just by casual examination"). Janice is convinced that her choice is the right one. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Why watch this film?
22 January 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

Iowa State College presented this turkey on film. It's basically an obscenely cheerful telling of the story of 4 women who are at ISC and study the various courses in Home economics. These women were definitely chosen for their physical attractiveness rather than their acting ability. Skewered on MST3K for its bad acting, and rightly so.
