1956. Obsessed with the hottest girl in class, a gawky high school student takes a crash course in teenage coolness from his motorcycle rebel neighbour, under the watchful eye of the eternal symbol of teenage rebellion: James Dean.
Catherine Mary Stewart,
Christine (Phoebe Cates), a student at an exclusive all-girls private school, is in love with Jim, who attends an academy for boys nearby. Christine's arch rival Jordan also has her eye on Jim, and she is willing to do whatever she can to steal him away. Jim's uber-slob buddy Bubba is going with Betsy, Christine's cynical friend, though he would probably be unfaithful if any other woman were willing to get near him. Bubba and his pals sneak into the girls' school dressed in drag in hopes of reaching the Promised Land (better known as the women's shower room), while Christine and Jim run away together for the weekend, though their escapade isn't as romantic as they had hoped.Written by
When Bubba is in the sauna in the girl's locker room, he watches a girl with long dark hair held back by a chrome barrette leave the shower with a blonde girl, go to her locker, and dry off to get dressed. When he turns and looks toward the shower, the same dark-haired girl can be seen in the shower again. See more »
Bets, have you ever really done it, all the way?
Well, yes and no.
Wha'd you mean yes and no? Don't you know?
Bubba says we did it once and it was very good for both of us, but I was passed out I don't remember a thing.
Well, it's not gonna be like that for me. What else does Bubba say?
He says that I had three orgasms, that I begged him for mercy, and that I've never seen a man so well endowed.
Well is he?
Is he what?
Is he well endowed?
I don't really know. I mean not first hand. Just from ...

The TV version adds footage deleted from the theatrical release:
A scene of Christine and Jim having dinner at the hotel they've come to lose their virginity at.
Shots of Jim and Christine taking turns jogging from their car into a drugstore to buy condoms.
The scene at the end where the girls moon Miss Dutchbok is replaced by a shot where the girls moon her wearing their underwear instead.
This movie is all about Cates, and Russel, but there're good amount of flesh in between too.
The movie basically is about sexual interest the boys have in the girls that are in the same private school they're in. There're very little other plots to the story.
The movie basically revolves around Christine (Phoebe Cates), and Jordan (Betsy Russel). While Cates is severely limited in her range of emotions, Russel carries most of the interesting parts of the story.
For a movie that has almost no story to it, it's sure entertaining. The movie is basically a prototypical "cute" movies of the '80s, where raw power of the '70s started to take back seat to smaller social settings, and more charming behavior of the '80s.
The movie is certainly one of the classic teen movie of all times, and is still entertaining to watch. ≈
