If you like boobs and screenwriters who couldn't tell a joke if their lives depended on it...
3 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Mind-numbingly awful 80s sex farce. It's probably one of the worst made movies I've ever seen, but it's so awful that it kind of goes back around to becoming almost fascinating in its pure horridness. Almost. Man, these people have no idea how to construct a gag. You watch it, and you kind of know what they were going for, but it misses its marks by so far that you kind of feel sorry for it. I really do feel sorry for all the poor actors and, especially, actresses who appear in it. The story has five high school guys who plan on getting revenge on the high school's only virgin (Linda Speciale, playing a character named Purity Busch) after she gets them in trouble. Kind of a must-see for lovers of terrible movies.
