Summary: And one time, at band camp,
This is one of many films about teenagers in their last days of high school that simply must get laid before they graduate, or they will die. American Pie does a decent job of it, updating the material for the 90's. Unfortunately we don't get to see a shower room full of nekkid chix, or this would have got higher ratings. Still, the comparison to Porky's is a valid one, as it covers the same kind of material, in the same style. Particularly amusing are the parents, who prototypical yuppies, completely lost and without a clue as to how to raise kids. Thirty seconds from now, no one will remember this film, but hey, it's still fun nonetheless.

Summary: A Porky's For the Nineties
Sure, it's full of childish sexual humor. But you know what? Childish sexual humor makes me laugh sometimes. A disturbing lack of full frontal nudity keeps this out of the 'B' grade.
