For me the film is slightly below average because although i expected it to be a "teen sex comedy" and therefore not high art or thespian affair. I did feel it was weaker as a teen sex-based comedy overall. Although I try to take into account my era teen sex comedys were in 90s so I may ve comparing it to American Pie, Superband, Sex Drive, the 1 million and 1 bad National Lampoons. I can't compare it to the contemporaries of its era like Meatballs or Porky's yet. Maybe I could compare it to Revenge of The Nerds which was funny but I dont fully recall it or if I was thinking of one if it's sequels but if I was it didn't reach that mark.
The story progression and maybe the story itself was all over the place but the overarching plot was that a ragtag band of highschoolers from all different cliques/backgrounds (nerdss, weirdos, jicks, pretty boys, newkid) that probably would never band together in real life all get sent to detention because of the prude goody-twoshoes Purity Busch who by her name has never done 'anything' with anyone at T&A Highschool. So they plan/scheme ploys to see her boobs. Hijinks ensue.
The humor elements of the film try to throw everything into the mix. You have Benny Hill style slapstick, doubel-entendre wordplay, physical/prop humor, and antics based humor and even bad ADR and sound effects based humor. Some of it is indeed funny and got a very very mild laugh from me. Most of the antics tho seemed predictable (although some were creative the nerds mirror setup or the bowling alley one). There is also a fair bit of nudity as its an 80s sex comedy. I feel like there was more nudity in this than I expected lol. Speaking if nduity what really caught me off guard was while i had this cued i didnt expect to watch it as recently as i did. The only reason I watched it this early was because I was watching Chopping Mall written/directed by Jim Wynorski and the Trivia said he and his wife/gf, Linda Shayne, wrote Screwballs. After some digging I seen she went to university SNF graduated with high honors so I was curious to how someone who was pretty smart even could write low-brow humor. I didn't know she would be an actress (the Goodhead character) and topless herself. Not that there is anything wrong with that and her body her right ra ra feminism blah blah. But it certainly caught me off guard. Also good thing she was cool enough to show them off it before she got old and her skin sagged or wrinkle because all I gotta say was DANG them thangs were pretty!
Anyway it was slightly less than average IMO but I'm giving it 3 stars
