Who does he think he is, Errol Flynn?
19 August 2018 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

I'm old enough to remember when late 40 something Errol Flynn was dating 15 year old Beverly Aadland in the late 50s. Though the spread wasn't as big in High School Lover, I was kind of wondering who Francois Arnaud was channeling. Could it have been Errol Flynn?

James Franco's high school age daughter Paulina Singer gets comped into a private party with two of her friends Lana Gordon and Tyler Alvarez and she gets the hormones of late 20 something film star Arnaud in overdrive. As Franco is a director he's also in the business and his second wife Julia Jones and Arnaud have some history and it ain't good.

I don't need to tell you more. Arnaud gets some Flynn like publicity and a good deal more than that. Singer was legal so at least there aren't any rape charges.

What can I say High School Lover is as trashy as it gets. Although I can imagine a few years back it might have been the wish dream of any teen girl or gay teen boy to have say a Jonas brother waiting for school to let out on his motorcycle parked in front, these things truly don't happen in real life.

Speaking of gay boys Tyler Alvarez gives a nice positive performance of a gay teen. He's on the lacrosse team and apparently in this high school nobody really cares. Alvarez, Singer, and their friend Lena Gordon are like an R rated version of Lizzie McGuire and her two friends.

I liked how Alvarez played his role and how it was written. Too bad it's part of such trash.
