Summer School might lack a hipster razor edge, but its funnybone personality is larger than life. It's a film I adore for its purity of intentions.

Reiner keeps everything moving while letting Harmon do the heavy lifting as his young co-stars sprinkle the chuckles around.

A bit bland compared to Reiner's Steve Martin comedies, but engagingly played.

if there was any justice in the world we'd be seeing reruns of this on TNT every Sunday instead of endless repeats of Sixteen Candles and its ilk

Above average comedy. Mark Harmon is perfectly down to earth, and the supporting characters are all memorable.

The moral is a sweet one: If you try, you never fail. The world is graded on a curve.
