I have to say that I never saw the seminal (in every sense of the word) teen sex comedy Screwballs back in the 80s, and it was one heck of an oversight. Screwballs is to teen sex comedies what Last House on the Left is to horror. There are more naked girls, goofy horny guys, and inappropriate jokes than in most other 80s films combined. In fact the raunch reaches a level of slapstick that is more on par with the feel of a crazy 30s era gag-a-second Fleischer cartoon than an 80s comedy. The flick was also produced under Roger Corman, which might have something to do with its level of debauchery (but in the best sense of the word.)

If you haven't seen it, the basic gist of the film revolves around a pact made by five senior guys who all have a beef with one girl, the ultimately virginal Purity Busch. She's either gotten them in trouble or lead them on and the guys decide that by the end of the school year they'll either get to see her "goods" and score, or die trying. Though the film should be qualified as terrible, where plot is really secondary to the mass amount of gags in the film, the set dressing keeps bouncing between the 50, 60s, 70s, and the 80s, and with acting that for the most part is insanely bad, it's still pretty great. It's almost like watching a live action adaptation of a much dirtier version of MAD magazine that still manages to be funny. Between sessions of strip bowling, insane make-out sessions a the drive-in, freshman breast exams, trips to the strip club (with a guest appearance by Russ Meyer star Raven DeLaCroix), ornate brainwashing attempts involving an giant fake hot dog, insanely inappropriate cheerleading practice in bikinis, and a milf mom who is playing the cougar to the point of being overdubbed with animal growls, you'll never be bored.

I saw this movie when it was originally released in April 1983. As a horny 15-year-old movie geek, I had to wait outside the theater until I found an adult (also seeing the movie) to get my ticket and take me into the theater past the suspicious glance of the manager. It was totally worth it! I also had to catch the last few minutes of the other movie playing there in case the paerental units started asking questions. (it was the PG-rated Disney flick Something Wicked This Way Comes). Released by New World Pictures, there are no known actors in it.
Screwballs (1983, New World, D: Rafal Zielinski)-Yeah, it's the usual teenage shenanigans, vulgar jokes, half-naked girls and very low-brow humor. But I enjoy this flick because it doesn't pretend to be anything other than what it is. I'm not exactly sure why I like this sleazy teen trash movie the best, everything about it reeks of a quickie, low-budget rush job intended to capitalize on the success of Porky's. For some reason, I find this movie hilarious. The plot (such as it is) is simplicity itself, five high school boys (circa early 60s) who meet in detention make a pact to deflower the school homecoming queen Purity Busch (Lynda Speciale) who's responsible for them being there. It's the usual collection of guys, the stud, the rich kid, the new guy, the fat slob and a spastic nerd. The characters even have funny names, for example, the fat guy is named Melvin Jerkovski (he's a chronic masturbater) and one of the girls (Linda Shayne, Humanoids From The Deep) is Bootsie Goodhead. The other nemesis in this flick is Principal Stuckoff (what does that rhyme with?), the uptight idiot who's always out to spoil somebody's fun (he even cuts the string on somebody's yo-yo!).

I'm going to make this review short and sweet:
Before Superbad (which is excellent), there was this film from the 1980s...over-the-top, silly sex gags, totally immature, college guy-needs-to-sleep-with-hot-girls plot, and pure funny stuff...but it's got some DAMN clever writing...some that will make you laugh out loud...I've loved this film my entire life...If you liked the first "Revenge of the Nerds", or "Porky's", it's very similar...
Is it brain food? No...
Is it really funny? Hell yeah.

best,

Fun! Stupid! Cliche! Satirical! Juvenile! These words would appear in a long review. Watch it and enjoy it! The bowling ball scene is priceless. So is the drive-in scene. EVERY scene really.

As someone who grew up in the '80s I love the horror and sex comedies, after all my favorite comedy is Porky's. I have been waiting for Screwballs to come out on dvd since dvd first came out, same goes for Hot Resort, Army Brats, Bad Manners, Hot Pacific Banana are just a few I'm still waiting for. Also cheaper on Blu Ray than dvd? Although being an older movie I don't think the quality will be much different still if you enjoy movies like Porky's, Private Resort, Hardbodies and other raunch comedies you need to see this move.

Better than Porkys, better than Joysticks, Screwballs is as fantastic now as it was when it was released in 1983. More than 25 years and it is still going strong! The ending of the movie is absolutely incredible, as the protagonists visit a strip club and view the delights of a voluptuous and mammothly-endowed BTC! I highly reccomend this rare DVD for any connoisseur of beautiful females.

Here's the great news! The price has come down drastically from even just three months ago! The old DVDs that had initially been offered (One Still Is) may have been second hand or perhaps they were dubbed, who knows. The new DVDs appear to be legitimate studio productions and at the lower price are much more affordable. So if you are out there Mr. Cousin and Mr. Lightkeeper, they have affordable DVDs out on the market now that are brand new. I'm going to buy two more!
