Movie Info

Five high school boys chase after "Purity" Busch (Lynda Speciale) for impure reasons in this undistinguished teen sex comedy that emphasizes the absurd (such as a bowling ball attached to a sensitive part of the anatomy, going down the lane for a strike), and points to its own buffoon-like quality in fast-forward segments. As the five try one mindless stunt after another to lure Purity into their clutches, many a viewer would fast-forward the 80-minute running time even further. ~ Eleanor … More

Audience Reviews for Screwballs


No this movie isn't as poignantly raunchy as Porky's, but it's a lot of fun. The sex jokes are very clever, and although it's naughty it doesn't make you feel uncomfortable. The actors aren't very good, but they play the character types the way you expect them to, and that works with the kind of movie it is. Seriously, I was laughing a lot through this movie. It's not the best, but it's fun.

The most juvenile T & A movie I've ever seen and thats saying something.

"Strip bowling?!"

Meh, you get what you expect. There are many that are far better in terms of quality of production and comedic content..
