A comedy so listless, leisurely and unspirited that it was an act of the will for me to care about it, even while I was watching it.

Cliches abound in this silly outing. Not the brightest moment for any of those involved.

Here are some of Summer School's favorite things: idiocy, illiteracy, irresponsibility, drunkenness, dumbness and debauchery. Piqued?

Mr. Harmon has an easygoing attractiveness, but neither he nor anyone else seems comfortable with the film's antic pace. And for all its busyness, this comedy has no real focus, ricocheting from character to character with wearying abandon.

Another failure in Harmon's attempt to move from TV to the big screen.

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

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.

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

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

A surprise for anyone expecting just another dumb teen sex comedy
