Two fifteen year-old girls from different sides of the tracks compete to see who will be first to lose their virginity while at camp.
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".
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. ...
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.
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!
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).
