Trivia

Director Tom McLaughlin built his career in the 1980s by constantly shopping around both comedy and horror scripts he wanted to direct, a dichotomy which earned him the job of directing Friday the 13th Pt. 6 when Paramount decided they wanted a more tongue-in-cheek installment in the franchise. This has led many critics to believe that McLaughlin willfully played up some of the more sensational aspects of the script in order to create an intentionally "so-bad-it's-good" film. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the movie where Justin goes to apologize to Amy, the shots of the front porch include a giant white sticker on the mailbox that reads "NO JUNK MAIL" - however, on the close-up shot, the sticker is missing from the mailbox. See more »

Quotes

Diane Petersen: You have a problem with pornography.
Justin Petersen: No, Dr. Phil, I don't.

Never saw such a one-sided, stupid, prude botch. The only thing they forgot to tell is that masturbating causes blindness. But then it isn't even necessary as the main character just stares, and stares ... but let's assume the movie tries to imply he's masturbating. Let's repeat: Watching porn and probably masturbating has several consequences, for example:

  • You look old and tired: Every teenager not sleeping enough looks like that. What does a typical geek look like?


  • You'll fail at sports and school: Can be true, but it's not a consequence of porn, but of any obsessive behavior, computer games or sports (yes, too much training can have an impact on studies, but then we in Europe don't have a tradition of giving sportsmen and -women a free ticket through higher education) can also lead to the same results.


  • You want to sleep with your GF: Hell, which teen boy doesn't want to? I would worry more if he wouldn't!


  • Your friends turn against you: LOL! Usually it's more like who knows the dirtier jokes in any normal school :)


I really like the earlier comment about his small brother playing GTA. It's true, his Mum doesn't care her younger son just killed a "drug dealer" (Lesson: we don't need judges anymore). Doesn't our society have more problems with violence than with sexuality? Let's do a piece of logic (it's as wrong as this movie, but let's try). Islamic Terrorists don't watch porn, it's an affront against their religion. Ergo: NOT watching porn makes you a terrorist.

Well, all the uptight Victorian people out there will love this stupid flick.
