Lessons to be learned
2 June 2001 | by moviewatcher2010See all my reviews

This movie was well presented for the time it came out (1983 -- a movie like this would not work today). On a general note, from the title, you can tell what the scenario is going to be -- a college freshman accepts a job from her English professor babysitting for her two children. She then meets her professor's husband, which awakens something in both of them -- they start looking at each other from the get-go. He is then only too glad to drive her home when she babysits. Then they confess to each other how they really feel, which leads to a kiss, then another and another, and so on.... a typical affair. It goes through the usual highs, then the lows -- the excitement, then the heartaches. One can learn from this movie of what an affair can do to a marriage. The one problem though was that he seemed to put himself in conspicuous places with her, i.e. her dorm room, her staying at his house, locked in an embrace, when her English professor is due home "any minute". On the whole, it is worth seeing.
