I first heard of this film in 1991 when it came on USA network.. I kinda liked it, it was filmed in 1982. It had some hot chicks, Low budget music and made for almost nothing.. The story centers around 4 high school valley girls who are spoiled and hang out with college dudes. The girls are pretty good looking. Now there are no real big names in this film, except for sonny bono who has a quick scene. I liked the relationship between the 4 friends. The acting seems cheesy , but the vals acting is actually pretty well recieved.. The subplot is the bored girls try to save poor kids from drug dealers.. And save thier shelter from being closed.. And there is two diffrent versions of this film, one is a Usa network version. And an R-rated video version with some nudity and cussing, not really that bad. In the r-rated version there is a scene at a frat party where one of the vals is screwing a line full of horney guys. Well, not much nudity is shown, it could have been more. The film sat on a shelf from 82 till 86 when vestron video picked it up.... It is now out of print...And hasnt surfaced on cable again. and probley never will..
