"Officer, that hoodlum's hair ...!
22 April 2007 | by HandlinghandelSee all my reviews

"... The highlights and streaks are hurting my eyes." Yes, this is a pretty lame story about bad teenagers. The pivotal figure looks like Troy Donahue: More a surfer than a tough guy. Of course, times have changed in 25 years. But "The Blackboard Jungle" came earlier. And it still packs a wallop.

I love low-budget trash. This is low-budget but it seems to be part drive-in juvenile delinquent movie and half an urban "Tammy." The plot is OK. Not new by any means but it worked before and it works here. The actor playing the obsessed police officer is decent. His wife is done up so she looks more like a b-girl than a loving wife. She wears very short skirts, has a vacant look. All she needs is some gum to snap.

What I'm trying to say is that it all seems bogus. It doesn't feel as if the producers' hearts were in it. It was a quickie that might pull in a few bucks. And sometimes that Results in an exciting little movie. This one is little but it's not exciting.
