Loose Screws

Overview

Filmed in just four weeks one fine autumn in 1984, this amateur teen sex romp, with not a lot of sex but a lot of trying, was released a few years later as Screwballs II. A melange of young men and women with only physical contact on their minds have been put together in the same boarding school by their trusting parents. Some inkling of the level of the comedy involved is revealed by the names of these erstwhile students: Steve Hardman, Hugh G. Rection, and Marvin Eatmore. ...

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Even by genre standards, this late straggler in the 1980's teen comedy cycle is pretty threadbare: the script throws out any pretense of story in favor of cut-rate vaudeville hijinks, the production values are at about a porno-film level and most of the supposedly high school-age cast members look like they are pushing thirty. Despite these many stumbling blocks, Loose Screws puts forth a surprising amount of energy in pursuit of its lowball comedy aims. Director Rafal Zielinski (who also helmed the similar Screwballs) keeps the raunchy humor rolling at a breakneck clip and the film's original pop song soundtrack boasts some surprisingly catchy tunes: the funniest is a song about condoms entitled "Circular Impression." None of the young leads really make much of an impression but everyone is competent enough for this sort of fare and future stand-up comedy success Mike MacDonald displays some deft comic timing as the film's Dean Wormer-styled principal. The end result is a silly ball of fluff best appreciated in an insomniac haze at 2 a.m. in the morning. To sum up, Loose Screws is too silly and rough-hewn to appeal to viewers accustomed to slicker modern teen comedy fare like American Pie and is best left to genre completists for its modest value as a period piece.
