Summer School: Life's a Beach Edition
Review by Lando da Pimp

Summer School is one of the funnier 80's highschool teen films. While it's not the gross out humor of Revenge of the Nerds or Porky's it is a very funny film that deals with real teen issues. Oh and there are no naked boobs.

The Story
Summer School features the reluctant gym teacher, Freddy Shoop (played by Mark Harmon), forced to teach a summer school class. Out of his element, Shoop, must deal with a classroom full of high school misfits. He also must learn how to teach. His unconventional methods for teaching take the class to an amusement park, the beach, and a go cart track. Shoop wins over the kids, but not the vice princilpal who watches over the class. When it comes time for the summer to end Shoop, with the help of a fellow teacher (Kirstie Alley), must do anything they can for the kids to graduate.

click here The class is made up of the typical unique (weird) high school students. Dean Cameron & Gary Riley portray the horror fanatic Dave and Chainsaw, named for his love of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre film. A very young Courtney Thorne-Smith plays Pam House who develops a crush on his teacher. Shawnee Smith, from Becker and the Saw movies portrays the pregnant teen Rhonda. You also have the typical jock, nerd, and outcast. The Breakfast Club in Summer School.

The life a Beach edition contains two documentries about the film. Part of the cast reunites to discuss the film. The second documentry examines the students of the film.

I never really thought that Summer School would have a "special edition." It's just not that type of film. I remember enjoying the film in the 80's because I was allowed to watch it as a kid with its PG-13 rating. The film doesn't hold up very well as other 80's comedies. The humor is outdated and the "cool" kids come off just strange. However, fans of the movie will enjoy seeing how some of the actors aged and have a good transfer of the film.
