When Vice Principal Phil Gills (Robin Thomas) calls you into his office right before summer break and tells you that you have to take a summer school class, it really can upset all your plans. Well that's the way it hit Freddy Shoop (Mark Harmon). He already had plans to go off with his girlfriend and have a beautiful summer. Not this summer at least he wasn't.
What's even worse is you have to teach a class of deadheads, like Chainsaw (Dean Cameron) and Dave Frazier (Gary Riley). These guys would make any teacher quit. Mr. Shoop wasn't any ordinary teach. He really didn't care until it was told to him that if the kids didn't pass he wouldn't get tenure.
Well if you need help as a teacher, then go to the teacher next door, Robin Bishop (Kirstie Alley) and ask for help. It also helps if she is attractive.
Shoop gets things going except the class wants things in return. They want to be bribed to study. Shoop gives in and let's them get favors. Pam House (Courtney Thorne-Smith) wanted to move into Shoops house and play house. She had the hot's for him.
Shoop gets the kids studying but does he get them to pass. Watch the movie and find out. Look this movie is hilarious and it's worth sitting down and having a good laugh.
Director Carl Reiner does a wonderful job with the cast making this one of the best summer school movies ever. So take the shoes off, set a spell, and sit back and laugh your butts off. Enjoy.
