1987, Paramount, 97 min, USA, Dir: Carl Reiner

Director Carl Reiner gives John Hughes a run for his money with one of the funniest teen comedies of the 1980s. High-school gym teacher Freddy Shoop (Mark Harmon) is looking forward to vacation - until he’s forced to teach a remedial English class during summer school. Among the underachievers in his charge are Courtney Thorne-Smith, Patrick Labyorteaux and Kelly Jo Minter. Kirstie Alley is the history teacher next door who catches Shoop’s eye. Music by Danny Elfman.
