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.

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.
