The review of this Movie prepared by Angela Cowart

Growing up in the 80's was tough! Esspecially for Stacey (Jennifer), her brother Brad(Judge), and good ole' Spiccoli (Sean). Stacey just lost her virginity, Brad just lost his job, and Spiccoli, well, he just lost his mind. Meanwhile, a perfectly nice boy likes Stacey, but thast not exciting enough for her. Spiccoli can't pass history! Meanwhile, Brad loses his job in the films greatest scene...Enjoy!
