The high school teacher congratulates students for studying, claiming most of them ended up on plus side of "bell curve" following recent test; but there is no way a majority of them could wind up either side (plus or minus) because a bell curve is a graphic way of demonstrating the norm (in this case, test scores) in the middle, with upper or lower scores trailing off equally on either side - hence the "bell" designation.

I was under the impression that CORVETTE SUMMER was a TV movie, because I first saw it about 15 or more years ago on the tube, but maybe I'm wrong. Anyway, Mark Hamill starts as the slacker high school student who finds a reason to finish his secondary education in restoring a junked corvette in his shop class. The fun starts when his baby is stolen and he sets out to track it down. With the help of an eccentric drifter-cum-hooker-cum-beautician-cum-drivethru girl(Annie Potts), Mark chases down his dream to Las Vegas. Will Mark find his 'Vette? Will Annie be able to hold down a job? Will the two come together. Watch and find out
