My Tutor Reviews
"Time to go to the drug store and get your fit."-Billy (Clark Brandon)
Crispin Glover's first, horray! Routine 80's teen sex romp, with plenty of female nudity. Also, I don't recommend going to Mexico to lose your virginity.
The film is considerably less vulgar than a lot that came out at the time, even though it does throw in a lengthy and completely unnecessary backstory about Matt Lattanzi and his buddy trying to lose their virginity. That was obviously meant to please fans of these types of comedies. The essential story involved Lattanzi falling for his French tutor, played by Caren Kaye, and despite the tawdry nature of the story it is handled with a surprising amount of sophistication and tact. That makes the whole thing a little easier to swallow. In fact, the film is a lot more a love story than a typical teen sex comedy, but in the same respect it never aspires to be anything more than drive-in fodder.
The boy's crazy, sex-starved antics aren't funny, and the one amusing thing in the movie that I did enjoy was the hired help pandering to Lattanzi's mother even though they speak perfect English and are making plans to attend college. That could have been played up more. As it stands, "My Tutor" doesn't rank with the worst of them, but it doesn't rank much higher. It only has its mind in the gutter about half the time.
The music was awesome, can't get 'The First Time We Made Love' out of my head.
Crispin Glover was hilarious as only he can be.
A good amount of nudity and hot 80's girls.
The script has lots of great one-liners and jokes.
