All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Teen Oriented Voyeurism rules as the protagonist (Brown) stalks his prey (and her stand-in) armed with cameras, binoculars, and an overtly Oedipal mix of fear and desire.

Private Lessons is made for the Clearasil market, pimply and freshly pubescent.

A subplot involving blackmail and featuring Hesseman serves as filler between sexual episodes.

It won't make you laugh, but it will make you feel unclean.

Rent it for nostalgia value, if you must, but be prepared for a sex comedy with very little sexiness and a complete dearth of comedy.

Audience Reviews for Private Lessons

An incerdibly generic and boring 80's sex comedy. Not funny at all, extremely boring and predictable. The movie does deliver in the nudity department however for whatever that is worth to you. Not very good at all.

I saw this movie on TV a long time ago, but I recall not liking it. It wasn't romantic or erotic or funny or anything. I didn't care for it.

A star just for Sylvia Kristel, because the acting and script are awful. The blackmail sub-plot is just stupid beyond belief.
