A quirky, fluffy, free-wheeling series of humorous vignettes involving three aspiring student teachers' seriocomic experiences at Valley High School in California. Susan ("Blood Sabbath") Damante teaches an open-minded, but controversial after school class which promotes a healthy, up-front attitude about sex. Brooke ("Dream No Evil") Mills blows off her hypocritical pseudo-bohemian male chauvinist art teacher lover Richard Doran in order to become more attached to a much more nice and considerate guy in her photography class. Streetwise black student Brenda Sutton pulls off an elaborate scam in which two drug cartels are pitted against each other in order to raise enough money to save a burgeoning learning center from closing down.
The supporting cast is right on the money: Johnny Ray McGhee as an overaged borderline drop-out who assists Sutton with her crafty, dangerous ruse, the ever-sleazy Charles ("The Hot Box") Dierkop as a ruthless Italian smack pusher, then popular radio disc jockey "the Real" Don Steele as a -- you guessed it -- super-smooth disc jockey, the ubiquitous (and very short) Dick Miller in a hilarious piece of miscasting as an uptight, foul-mouthed, irascible jerk of a basketball (!) coach who turns out to be a brutal rapist, Tara Strohmeier as a cute teen, and none other than Chuck Norris, who has a quick "sneeze and you'll miss him" bit as a -- what else? -- karate instructor. The essential drive-in movie ingredients for a solid and satisfying romp are all present and accounted for: mucho gratuitous nudity, sexual assault, goofy montages set to dippy early 70's pop-rock tunes, zany car chases, wacky shoot-outs, swear words, free love -- y'know, all that fun, funky junky stuff which makes these kind of flicks so worthwhile. Jonathan ("White Line Fever," "Heart Like a Wheel") Kaplan's speedy, stable direction, Stephen ("Switchblade Sisters," "Sister Sister") Katz's bright, pretty cinematography, and David Nichtern's nifty banjo-happy, harmonica-tinged blues and country music score earn passing marks as well, thereby clinching this baby's status as an endearingly wiggy, disjointed, and, yes, even charming so-idiotic-it's-oddly-appealing-and-entertaining New World Pictures teen sexploitation treat.
