Bubble gum never tasted so good!
I was a pubescent fan of the two "kid" actresses when this film exploded with a print ad featuring Tatum (The Bad News Bears) and Kristy (TV's Family) with breasts and looking hot! hot! hot! Coming of age never looked so good. The scene where Matt Dillon snaps Kristy's bubble gum bubble from her lips and puts it in his mouth is forever molded into my memory.

Trivia

At the bonfire Angel says she won't see Randy for a couple of days because he got caught being out after curfew but later the same night she him picks up & they go back to the boathouse. She is wearing the same shirt as during the bonfire. Ferris says she's going to Gary that same night. Back at the cabin the rest of the girls wait for them both.


Quotes

Angel: I lost. I didn't tell 'em, get it?
Randy: You let yourself lose?
Angel: Yeah, I'm a loser.
Randy: I didn't mean that. Let's give it another shot, huh, Angel?
Angel: We started in the middle. We never even had a beginning.
Randy: We could try. We don't even have to see each other if you ...


Goofs

The first time Angel and Randy go to the boathouse she picks him up in a tan canoe. When they pull into the boathouse the canoe is green.


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).
