02.14.08Netflix Netflix calls this the black American Graffiti on their little summary note. You can't really deny it, although it feels a tad more like Porky's to me but maybe porky's is the Flordia Cooley High since it came afterward? Anyway, pretty fun watching the main group of kids get into hijinx and whatnot with a good Motown song catalog backing them up. I didn't know that Boys 2 Men song that was really popular like 15 years ago was a cover of a song from this movie so that's certainly something learned. Turman was pretty good here but I think the crazy thing is that he did JD's Revenge the next year. Here... well ok he doesn't look 100% young (partially because they dress him in old man clothes) but he certainly plays the part of a high school student and just a year later he's a 35 year old pimp. Crazy.

I liked this movie... not loved nor loathed.
