He’s too cool for school.
Riding a pretty-smooth late ’80s vibe, Mark Harmon was born to play the freewheeling teacher at the heart of this light ‘n frothy teen comedy.
Forced to teach a class of misfits, while sun and sand lurk just outside, he’s not looking to harsh on anyone’s mellow.
I first saw this on VHS, as half of a sweet and salty double feature.
The other film, which scarred me for life, was Xtro, where a woman is split apart while giving birth to a full-grown man.
Thankfully, I watched Summer School second, restoring my own vibe.
