Jonathan, a naive country boy, gets a scholarship to a classy prep school, where he rooms with suave, rich and handsome Skip. Skip decides it is his duty to see that Jonathan loses his virginity, so he sends Jonathan to Chicago, where Jonathan meets Ellen, a beautiful older woman, and they be- gin an affair which ends abruptly when Ellen discovers Jonathan is 17. During Christmas break, Jonathan visits Skip's house and discovers that Ellen is Skip's mother.

Trivia

In the scene where Skip Burroughs (Rob Lowe) is being questioned by Balaban, Balaban asks him if he's related to the same Burroughs that's on the board of AT&T. Skip confirms that his father (played by veteran actor Cliff Robertson) is indeed on AT&T's board...which coincidentally has a real-life connection...Cliff Robertson was an AT&T pitch-man for several years in their 1980s television commercials and was known as "Mr. AT&T" at the time.

A Nice Guilty Pleasure From The Comedies of the 1980s
20 May 2015 | by mrturk182See all my reviews

Class is another one of those 80's sex comedies you've seen already during that era. For the most part, they have more focus on the sex than the comedy, and this movie's no different. What saves it, though, is that they're putting more time and effort into the comedy scenes with slapstick writing that plays out like a domino effect. The execution in those scenes also benefits from the fresh performances of upcoming actors that went on to become key heartthrobs in the biggest teen movies from the 80's, such as Rob Lowe and Andrew McCarthy (St. Elmo's Fire), as well as Alan Ruck (Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and John Cusack (Say Anything). There are even some deep moments too, which touch on maturing into adulthood and building trust within male friendships, especially when McCarthy's character has a sexual relationship with Lowe's mom. Does Class have any class? Not a lot, but with a clever narrative and solid performances, it's worthy of consideration.
