I have to agree with Maltin on this one. It stunk like crazy. Travolta a music teacher in a all boys school was an admirable feat, but not really that well pulled off. The interplay between the boys school and the girls school was trite and too precious at times but we did have some really nice girls to look at (Graham, Paltrow) unfortunately they looked like they were ready to be housewives of the 50s rather than teenagers, sometimes frumpy and few moments where they actually looked like they were not haggard students. As well the boys looked like they were living in a shanty town in comparison to the girls The finer points of the film were seeing Richard Jordan, an actor that I think was underrated in our time, unfortunately his role of strict school master almost mirrored his role of strict orphan director from another bomb he was in "Solarbabies", only slightly less sadistic. However if you choose to rent or (If your really lucky) catch this on cable listen carefully to the DJ on their radio, you just might recognize him, yet another underrated actor that was at least was fortunate to be heard and not seen in this movie.
