Storyline

Much of 18-year-old Sean's first summer after completing high school is spent with 28-year-old teacher Diane, whose husband is too often motorcycle-racing instead of with her. Wacko Ralph also has the "hots" for Diane; and it doesn't help that Sean was with Ralph's younger brother, Lou, when Lou died. Written by Kim Williams <KDWms@webtv.net>

Goofs

The lunch time pool scene at Sean's place. The shadows constantly change as the scene continues. The start has radiant sunlight showering Diane and Sean. As the camera cuts to a different angle, they are covered in shade. Move back to the original angle, all sun again. Continues for a while until the end of the scene. The same can be noticed on the water of the pool. First shot shows it bathed in sun. As Bonnie gets out of the pool, it is mostly shade. See more »

'Cult' Film all the way
23 January 2010 | by GreatornotSee all my reviews

Not much to add from the mish mash of reviews. I will give it a shot anyway. First off, I do not think this film was meant to be taken seriously. I sense the irony in having Jay North as the naive teen being seduced by his lovely teacher. Added irony is that Jay North aka Sean and his teacher are being stalked by vet Anthony James aka Ralph. Hmmmm wasn't 'Dennis the Menace' the kid that just would not leave Mr. Wilson alone. Perhaps I am reaching, perhaps not. In any event, the acting did not stand out , except for Anthony James, who I felt was brilliant as the stereotypical psycho vet. For male viewers like myself... You have to love the 'generosity' of Angel Thompkins , showing off her natural assets. This was part of my set and I felt it was better than I expected. As you can see I do not expect much from these bulk movie deals . Worth a watch. I must admit , it was refreshing to see a film go against the tide of PC. I do not think film makers would have much guts to do a film like this today. This was a very average flick and please folks , accept it for what it is. I do think it was meant to be somewhat spoofy.
