Another AWFUL teen comedy
4 March 1999 | by Tito-8See all my reviews

As a rule, teen-oriented films aren't all that good. This is especially true of these films that were made in the late 1970's and early 1980's. This movie is no exception. I'll admit that this film wasn't quite as predictable as most others in the genre, but when every joke lands with a thud, I don't really care if there is a touch of originality. Quite simply, this film is just as bad as the title would suggest.
