In this hilarious teen movie that paved the way for Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Breakfast Club, Bobby DeVito (Bruno Kirby, City Slickers) is the “senior campaign strategist” in a highly contested high school student body presidential election. Christine Alexander (Lee Purcell, Mr. Majestyk) is Bobby’s former girlfriend who’s almost guaranteed to win the election...because her opponent got suspended! To get even with Christine for breaking up with him, Bobby puts up an unknown candidate, Darryl Fitzgerald (John Friedrich, The Wanderers)—and the presidential race gets nasty! This irresistible ’70s cult comedy classic from director Martin Davidson (The Lords of Flatbush, Eddie and the Cruisers) features Didi Conn (Grease), Tim Matheson (Up the Creek) and a rockin’ soundtrack from Mike Love of The Beach Boys!
