Movie Info

The students of Ridgemont High have got nothing on these hard partying high schoolers, but when September rolls around and a new batch of seniors prepare for graduation, a class tragedy brings everyone together in this effort from director Jose Altonaga. Sean Willis is the jock who has it all, but a beautiful girlfriend and an athletic scholarship isn't enough to make up for a failed science test that suddenly brings his bright future into question. Class clown Jason Miller is the polar opposite of his athletic counterpart. Sarcastic and defiant, Miller frequently finds himself in detention hall with Sean and sexually obsessed computer wiz Zigmond "Ziggy" Karpinski -- whose unwholesome obsession with science teacher Miss Hershey is seriously impeding on his education. When Sean learns that his cheerleader girlfriend, Jenny, has gone to a party with big shot musician Dirk Allen, his jealousy gives way to anger upon discovering that Dirk has drugged and sexually assaulted the unsuspecting Jenny. Soon conspiring with Jason and Ziggy to get revenge on the sleazy rocker, Sean plots an elaborate revenge against Dirk that is certain to make Monclair High history.more

Audience Reviews for Hot Times at Montclair High


A corny, stupid, predictable little teen movie that isn't anything like the movie that it's title references. It does have a few funny bits, but overall, it's a bad movie.

Super Reviewer

Hot Times at Montclair High is not a great movie. However, it is a kind of fun movie to watch. There are some decent songs and the band does its best to play the full song for us. There are some funny scenes and there is a decent attempt at developing some of the characters.

A teen sex comedy with none of the charm of the popular '80s genre.

Watched on Netfux Instant Watch and still had buyer's remorse, very much a waste of time.
