Elevator Pitch A sixteen year old youth falls in love with a girl be meets in a trailer camp, and is egged on to do some wild stuff by his alter ego. The girl is sent off the boarding school and he and a friend follow her and break into the school, but are discovered and forced to escape in their underwear. And more of the same.
Content No nudity but some implied sex at different moments. The imdb keywords include “masturbation”, “boarding school”, “exploding trailer”!! Bits of a road trip, some quite good jokes involving cars.
A View It seemed slighty grubby even watching this, maybe due to the suggested youth of the protagonists. Even though there were some quite good ideas, I was unenthusiastic about the tone. Maybe a watch if you are also sixteen, difficult in America where it is R rated.
