I saw this movie on HBO in 1984 and always remembered it, it is part of my collection of 80's movies like it which I loved.
I really want to like this movie for the few things it does right; unfortunately they're not enough to counterbalance the many things it does wrong.
Duane Thomas
The sex scenes between the main character and his tutor convey the kind of passion that one can experience during a summer fling.

When watching "My Tutor", I think U2 stated it best "Sometimes you can't make it on your own." In other words, watch this movie with a friend, so you can enjoy the idiotic, yet simplistic storyline of this cult 80s classic and laugh together. Or if you lose conscious from how stupid, unbelievable, vapid and silly most the movie is and at least there is another person with you who can call for help.

Before I go any further, this movie is such a guilty pleasure for me and I love it, I'm man enough to admit it.

As for the movie itself, I will do my best to explain, starting with the plot. Bobby (Matt Lattanzi) has just graduated from high school, sort of. Bobby has flunked his French class which is the catalysts to the amazing plot of this prolific film. Since Bobby has failed French he will not be permitted into Yale. This notion doesn't sit well with Bobby's father, so daddy pulls some strings, since he is a Yale alumni, and a compromise is made: if Bobby can pass a French exam of 85% or higher, he can go to Yale in the fall.

Consequently Bobby only has the summer to prepare for this test, so daddy gets him a private tutor. Now to make matters even more exciting, Bobby's private tutor is a sexy blonde, 29 years of age named Terry (Caren Kaye). I don't know about you, but Bobby should be thinking really hard about buying his dad a nice father's day gift. The quagmire now is can Terry bring up Bobby's French skills so he can score at least an 85%?

This is the part I never saw coming, but Terry and Bobby become involved intimately and romantically. This relationship develops despite the fact that Terry is chic and a world traveled woman, and Bobby is a naïve and inexperienced young man.

In the early Eighties there was a garden industry of films about "losin' it", "Risky Business" being the "Citizen Kane" of the genre. Most of them were pure exploitative garbage with little or no redeeming social value. "My Tutor" was labeled by some as falling in this category. Don't be fooled. Yes, there are gratuitous nude scenes here. This was probably thrown in to make the bean counters at Crown International happy. The makers of this film actually attempted to make something profound. Siskel and Ebert at the time championed this flick on their show. The relationship between the virginal Bobby (Matt Latanzi) and Terry(Caren Kaye), his French tutor, is palpable and believable. The love scenes between the two are explicit but not in an exploitative way and there's a certain tenderness to them. Sex is only one part of the love they share and the conversations between the two are just as compelling. This film also showcases a young Crispin Glover who impresses and shows what might have been if he hadn't gotten wierd on the Letterman show. The term "buried treasure" is bandied about on alot of films but "My Tutor" definitely falls in that category.

What a summer to never forget.. This guy gets into a lurid, yet sweet love affair with a really beautiful French tutor and then sets himself up for a score on another amazingly beauty of his own age at the end. The end of the movie the main character guy jumps for joy. WOW I would too. .. I was taken aback somewhat on how drama-less MY TUTOR is. The movie pace is tepid and calm. The characters are just having a nice time, in a nice place in nice weather, and they seem aware of these facts and don't bother to get really angry or upset about certain plot events. It's just a summer fling. Another classic Crown International flick. The actors are attractive, the scenery nice and there is mischief and fun to be had.

One glaring missed opportunity is the kid's parents give him a big birthday party. Like rich people do it's catered with a live band. Seems unfortunate the movie budget didn't allow for a quality musical act. The group shown is an unknown new wave group which I am guessing really is not a group at all but rather actors.. and lame actors at that... and sound horrible! If a better band was inserted here, it would have elevated MY TUTOR a whole lot. I wouldn't expect Duran Duran, but any simi-known new wave 80's band, or any group with some talent would go a long way. Oh well that was a shame..
But I really enjoyed this very light summery flick. The actual tutor Caren Kaye is soooo attractive in a cute but striking way. She is addictive to watch.

first I must say that I had a crush on Matt when I was 13. Recently rediscovered him and ordered this dvdof which I had only seen mere seconds of at thirteen. This is a surprisingly good little film compared to all the teen exploitation films out there. Matt only seems to get interested in his tutor after he watches her swim nekked. This happens a lot. This guy has a great tush and they never exploit it! However he is shirtless a lot. Oh,when he is with the prostitute Kitten,and she takes off her top I swear our hero has an erection! She notices it too. I like the sounds she makes when she feels his muscles. But guys why, when he is playing with her breasts does he fall asleep? The movie could have been better if they had had the tutor teach him some lovemaking. Am I the only one who notices his passionate kisses are too fast and very smoochy? There's a sexy scene with him fantasizing about making love to Jewel Shepard in a phone booth. He drives a scooter, which is fun to watch. surprising since Daddy has so much money. Note: the birthday band is horrific. thery play the same 5 notes over and over again. Caren looks a lot like Olivia Newton John, I think.If you really want to see a sexy love scene with Matt in another movie, I reccommend "rich and famous" He takes it all off!
