Storyline

Starting a new tradition of sex comedy, T & A High School, five boys meet in the detention room thanks to the evil virgin princess Purity Busch. RICK - dressed as a doctor and gave breast exams to the high school new comers. BRENT - sexually teased Purity in French class. MELVIN - caught masturbating in the meat locker. HOWIE - rearranged the mirrors in order to see up the skirts of cheerleaders after practice. And TIM - tricked into entering the girls washroom. Each one fooled by Purity, they want revenge. Each one makes a pact to deflower the virgin, but all have failed. Their only chance is to work together with others of the school to get her at the homecoming game. Written by Wallace Entertainment

One Funny Movie
20 September 2003 | by dire69See all my reviews

I've seen this movie so many times and I own it on vhs and still to this day I enjoy watching it because it's so funny and it has one good looking guy in it. They should make more movies like this one because they are enjoyable to watch, more than some horror movies that have been done that are so much exaggerated and really class b types.
