On the eve of his Hawaiian vacation, irresponsible high school teacher Freddy Shoop (Mark Harmon) is forced into teaching a summer-school class. His students are all malcontents and layabouts with the standard repertoire of teenaged hang-ups and hostilities (two of the kids, who can't see enough slasher movies to suit them, are hilarious precursors to Beavis and Butt-Head). Harmon would rather spend his time with history teacher Robin Bishop (Kirstie Alley), but she doesn't think much of his laziness and lack of dedication. Shoop finally begins to take his job seriously when he realizes his students' problems are not all of their own making.

You can´t imagine this type of students, any personality you think about you got it! You can laugh every minute of the movie.
Excellent / funny movie. acting very good between everyone. something fun to watch.
Mostly forgotten, this movie is quite different from the teen-oriented product of it's era. This isn't a jocks versus nerds movie, or a sex comedy (there is no nudity at all, for one thing).
The usual cliches are mostly left alone, and that's probably because the story spends a lot of the time dealing with the two adult leads. Mark Harmon never became a big leading man after initially leaving TV, but he is likeable as a somewhat regressed gym teacher coerced into teaching summer school. Kirstie Alley isn't only his love interest, but presents a model for a more responsible but still approachable authority figure for him to emulate.
The cast of students is depicted broadly, but they are all appealing and there isn't a "bad" character in the bunch. Instead of creating conflict amongst them to drive the story, they are pitted against their own underacheiving tendencies.
Mild and enjoyable.
A MOVIE ABOUT A MAN WHO TEACHES KIDS FOR THE SUMMER ON EOF THOSE 80'S CLASSIC COMEDIES AND MAN KRISTE ALLEY WAS AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL IN THE MOVIE OFCOURSE THIS WAS BEFORE SHE DID LOOK WHO'S TALKING BUT WOW SHE WAS A BEAUTIUL LADY THE MOVIE BRINGS GOOD MEANING TO LIFE YAEH THE SUMEERS SUPPOSE TO BE FUN NUT HEY CLASS CAN BE FUN TOO HOO RAY FOR SUMMER SCHOOL
I would do anything for a dvd of this movie just watching it makes you feel relaxed and fun
When you and your friends want to forget about tests, assignments, papers, and all the other things that make school a pain; check out this movie. If school wasn't bad enough.. it's summer school.
