Of all the major cast members, each portraying a high school junior or senior, only John Friedrich was under the age of 20 at the time of production. In fact, most of the primary actors and actresses playing students were well into their twenties when filming commenced, with Lee Purcell already 30 years of age and Tim Matheson nearly 30.

This is one of the most enjoyable teen movies I have ever seen (and that I wished was released to video). It was released the same year as another great comedy in which Tim Matheson played a role "Animal House" (Which is probably why it was overlooked).
One of the most memorable parts of this film would definitely be the soundtrack, which could have and should have been a formal label release. The soundtrack features a lesser-known 70's act named High Inergy whose song "We are the future", played a marquee role in the movie's Prom scene. I remember purchasing the group's album "Steppin' Out" as a kid mainly because of the look of the girls and not necessarily for their musical talents.
The closing song is one of the best ballads I have ever heard, and I can still hear it in my head. I wish I knew the group's name so that I could look for it somewhere in cyberspace.
If you liked films such as "Over the edge" and "Rich Kids", I think this is one that you will enjoy as well.
