One of my favorite comedies of the 80's that not many have heard of. The script is much better than many similar teen comedies made at that time. Plus it has the great Virginia Madsen. What's not to love?

Not very appealing. A baffling movie that has Andrew McCarthy in a relationship with a cougar who is also the mother of his school roommate. Even Brat Pack fanatics will have trouble enjoying this one. (First and only viewing - 7/19/2014)

"I may not get laid tonight...though, that's highly unlikely."-Skip (Rob Lowe)

Lots of 80's faces to be had.

"I've never seen such a vulgar display of wealth."-Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy)

How have I not ever seen this?? All the young guys from 80's movies in this silly, fun movie. Must have been their first movies.

Pretty awful 1980s graduate rip-off is only worth watching for gawking at quite a few before-they-were-stars, which includes Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, John Cusack, Alan Ruck, Virginia Madsen, Casey Siemaszko, Joan Cusack and Lolita Davidovich. Jacqueline Bisset was kind of a star at the time and also appears. The quite unfunny film was written by David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf who would go on to work on much better things including "Grimm," "Angel" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer." There is, however, a good score by Elmer Bernstein while he was pigeonholed as a comedy film composer.

This is basically an interesting film - Andrew's character is a sympathetic student or at least until he hangs out with the guys of a prep-school he comes to. He is teased mercilessly after his roommate tricks him into dressing in a woman's bikini and gets locked out of the dormitory. He happens to meet his roommate's mother at a bar (not knowing who she is). She romances him and soon he has bragging rights at his school. She later finds out he is a student and abandons him but later is trying to call and to see him. Jacqueline Bisset as the unfaithful wife and mom plays perhaps the best character in this film. 4/10.

Pretty decent '80s movie. So fun to see John Cusack and Rob Lowe as young bucks.

Rob Lowe and Andrew McCarthy's comedic careers really took off with Class, a film I thoroughly enjoyed and found to be quite funny, even though it lacks originality.

Class is a film that's very funny and never takes itself too seriously. It was part of the raunchy teen films that were coming out at the time. You want something filled with young, horny guys that are just looking to fool around and get laid? This is the film for you. And with Andrew McCarthy and Rob Lowe, it's hard not to have fun. There's even the excellent supporting cast of John Cusack and Alan Ruck. The film takes place at prep school where a nerdy virgin rooms with a laid back guy who has the attitude of "screw the world and live in the moment." With the combination, they become pranksters, whether on accident or purposely. Skip gets Jonathan the first day to dress in a bra and panties then locks him outside. Then Jonathan shows he's not a pushover by getting him back with a fake "hanging himself" trick. One of the funniest scenes that play with each other is when Jonathan throws up on his date, then they go to organize a dance and he discovers his date works for the dance committee and she freaks out. This gets him banned from the dance, so Skip gives him a ticket and $100 to go to Chicago and get laid. There, Jonathan meets a sexy cougar who wants to jump his bones. Only problem, knowing Jonathan so well, he falls in love with this woman. What I expected to happen was for Rob Lowe to meet this woman and then it become a competition between the two of them. No, it takes a much more interesting turn. What's so great is that through the drama, the goofy antics never go away (mostly played out through Ruck and Cusack). Class may not be filled with as much heart or done as well as other teen movies of the 80s, but it definitely deserves recognition for being the movie that just wants to have fun while also trying to mix in some drama. I do have to say, this was one of the worst cut fight scenes I have ever seen. They hardly ever cut on the action. It made it that much funnier.


If you really want to call them spoilers. If anyone has read through that, then I'm sorry for ruining some of the gags. Anywho, the ending was hilarious. Basically, after they fight, Jonathan and Skip are leaned up against the bed and they have decided enough is enough. It ends with Skip saying "your mom called. Your dog died." A fantastic joke. You might have banged my mom, but your dog did end up dying. Truce?

Worthwhile college comedy very much in the 'American Pie' bracket of genres.

Lowe and Cusack and company just starting off in adolescent coming of age film

Fun but adult 80's teen comedy drama. It was fun all these years later to see Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy and John Cusak as teens.
