| Better than I expected.
Reasonably entertaining tale about "Vicki" (Karen Corrado) who catches her football captain boyfriend cheating. To prove a point she decides to go out for the football team herself, much to the chagrin of the boys and their grumpy coach. Otherwise it's more or less an after-school special of car chases, parties, fights, and sexual innuendo/politics. Some of the scenes are a little confusing. Why, for example, is there a "football class" for girls when no one wants the girls to play? This may be the only screwball teen comedy ever produced by Independent-International--or at least one of very few. The company was more known for violent, low-budget action pics helmed by the late cult director Al Adamson. A more convincing food fight and a little more nudity wouldn't have hurt, but I like the film OK for what it is. James Spader's cameo is great. I was also impressed with Corrado's performance and believe she showed potential to be a very good actress. A rather ominous sounding review at amazon hints that her real life maybe didn't turn out too well which, if true, is unfortunate. It doesn't appear she ever acted in any other film.
