Filmed in Tucson Arizona.
12 August 2018 | by bgldmnrSee all my reviews

This film was made on location at Tucson High School in Tucson Arizona. I was in this film as an extra playing a high school student. I have a copy on a CD. I don't remember CHER being in it but will watch it again to be sure. What is depicted in the movie was nothing like real life at THS. What a joke watching it now. But it was cool being in a movie on the big screen at the local drive-in.
