| Worth watching!
Very entertaining movie but what really makes it worthwhile is the wonderful performance by Kristy McNicol. That alone makes it worth watching - she carries the movie all the way through. Love the scene where she and Tatum have their heart-to-heart confession of what really happened - Kristy shows true emotion. Matt Dillon sure was a cute thing back then! Also, watch for a very young Cynthia Nixon from Sex in the City playing the hippie kid. And Armand Asante - what can I say! He was sure in his prime in the looks department! Tatum is only just okay in this film but then maybe that's how her character was supposed to be. A fun watch!

Trivia

One of this movie's poster tag-lines, "Don't let the title fool you" actually references a scene in this movie. When Randy comments on Angel's name, she replies: "Don't let the name fool you".


Quotes

Ferris: You sort of want me, don't you?
Gary: Ferris, maybe I do, but that's not the point. You see, to you, sex is poetry and phrases and everything you learned in books. You know, but when you're really in love...
Ferris: I am!
Gary: Ferris, I'm not a prince. I'm a teacher. ...


Goofs

In the bus fight scene, a short girl with braces is seen near the back of the bus. In the next shot, she is in between the fight and the front of the bus.


Crazy Credits

Marianne Gordon is listed in the credits as Mrs. Whitney. The actress filmed scenes as Ferris Whitney's (Tatum O'Neal) mother but her scenes were cut from the film. They gave her the credit as a courtesy!


Alternate Versions

NBC broadcast this film in early 1983 (and reran it in mid-1984) using an alternate version complete with originally cut footage to replace the risqué material as well as sloppy dubbing to cover up all traces of "virginity loss". In one case, when Cinder asks Sunshine to "play something sexy" on her flute, the dubbing changed the line to "play something SULTRY." In place of "whoever loses her virginity first--wins!" came the change "whoever gets a guy first--wins!" There was also a fairly large scene brought out of the vault which had Angel saving Ferris from drowning after Ferris' boat capsizes in a storm. Other new scenes: the hijacked bus breaking down just outside of Camp Little Wolf, forcing the girls to walk back with the condom machine; Miss Nichols asking each of the girls if they know anything about one of the campers being involved with Mr. Callahan; the girls going to Miss Nichols to confess their story (to get Gary out of trouble), including a reluctant Cinder (sporting a black eye from Sunshine's sock to her face).
