great sex comedy
Okay, maybe this is no American Pie but this movie does have it's moments. Chris, the lead character is likable and beth, the new girl at school he lusts over is absolutely gorgeous. Wonderful moments in this film make up for the cheesy dialogue and music in this film. Sylvia Kristel once again delivers a very sensual performance as the slighty older woman across the street who gives Chris love advice. If you liked this movie check out Private Lessons, also with Kristel.
