Shoop finally begins to take his job seriously when he realizes his students' problems are not all of their own making.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The minor Carl Reiner laugher Summer School was an odd place for makeup-effects wizard Rick Baker to ply his trade between his more traditional genre gigs, as it centers mostly on low-level high school slacker jokes and soft romantic comedy. In fact, the Fangoria-type gore that punctuates the students' practical jokes is of such better quality than the rest of the production, it makes the film deceptively memorable. Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley do the standard relationship two-step, with flirting rejections transforming into genuine affection, and the students are mild, two-dimensional delinquents who are easily redeemable. But it's a lot of fun to see them dabble with open wounds and severed body parts, even if it drastically outstretches their resources as backward high school students. If Summer School is ultimately pleasing to watch, it's more for the lightness of tone and geniality of characterization than for having much humor, mature or otherwise. The talents of Baker and Reiner make more of an impression than the script or the performers.

    Chainsaw and Dave steal the show

    If you grew up in the 80's then Summer School will hold a place in your heart. Mark Harmon shines as the teacher who doesn't want to teach a bunch of misfits who are too stupid to pass english and now they all must go to summer school. The premise is so 80's but the movie rules. Most of the best stuff is from the underrated Chainsaw and his buddy Dave. The movie is best when the class goes on all those crazy field trips, good $hit! Anyway go rent this if you want to see some good comedy.

    Noteworthy for it's good nature

    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). <BR/><BR/>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. <BR/><BR/>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.<BR/><BR/>Mild and enjoyable.

    Great for those days you dislike school... very often..!

    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.
