As far as 80's teen movies go this 2-disc collection is a must-see and must-have. For less than $2 and a quarter each you can't go wrong. It's actually cheaper to buy this combo than to buy just one of these movies. For starters- just so people know- this collection consists of 2 separate dvds- not one dvd with a movie per side.

"Class" (1983) was the first appearance of Andrew McCarthy, John Cusack and Virginia Madsen. It was the big screen introduction of Rob Lowe since his first movie "The Outsiders" had not yet been released in theaters. Alan Ruck also stars as one of the students as does a young Casey Siemasko, who, coincidentally, also went on to star as one of Tommy Howell's friends in "Secret Admirer." (There are actually two young actors who appear as students and friends in both of these movies.) "Class" was shot on location in Chicago and a little factoid that may be of interest is that John Cusack, who is from Chicago, later starred in "Grandview USA" (starring Tommy Howell) which was also shot on location outside of Chicago in Plymouth, IL, and he also starred in "16 Candles" another Chicago-set movie. Many of these young male stars seemed to have their work overlap into 6 degrees of separation without even needing Kevin Bacon. Anyway, "Class" is basically a teen sex romp comedy. Andrew McCarthy stars as the pathetic virgin who finds a sex-crazed 40-ish MILF who in turn takes pity on him and relieves him of his virginity only to find out later that he is much younger than he initially let on. Rob Lowe is his wild and wealthy roommate who urges him to get lost in some mindless decadence primarily aimed at losing his pesky virginity.

[This review is for those who have already seen the movie, so proceed with caution]

This movie was a big deal when I was in 9th grade. One of the goals for 14-year-old boys in 1983 was to sneak into the theater to see "Class", because it was about a 40-ish woman who has an affair with a high school kid, and it was the rare R-rated teen movie.

It's also a true Brat-Pack movie before that phrase entered the lexicon after 85's "Breakfast Club". While Rob Lowe had already done some film work, "Class" introduced us to Andrew McCarthy, Alan Ruck, Virginia Madsen, and John Cusack. Cusack's first words on film: "Great, douchebag!" directed at McCarthy, who almost creamed him with a trunk that slipped down the dorm stairs. As for Madsen, she won't discuss this movie even today, claiming that "those guys were a-holes". Very interesting. I wonder if Lowe in one of his several autobiographies discusses what happened on the set of "Class". I rather doubt it. The fact that Madsen endures having to expose a breast on film is probably a clue.

Luckily, the movie is more than its real-life backstory. It is, in fact, quite well done from start to finish, and I remain mystified by the continuing dismissal of it even from critics today. McCarthy was never much of an actor, but his inexperience doesn't harm him here. Lowe is the clear star of the picture. We're willing to like him even as he's playing a horrible prank on new-kid McCarthy; his laughter seems so good-natured that we don't hate him, and in any case the character's decency comes through pretty quickly when he thinks McCarthy is seriously wounded by the prank.

I saw this film when it first came out, and also saw the Siskel & Ebert review. They both liked the opening bit, but thought the film went rapidly downhill after the first scenes. I remember Roger Ebert complaining about the near-pedophilia depicted by Jacqueline Bisset. I think he missed the point. The story is about the relationship -- the friendship, the bond of love -- between the McCarthy and Lowe characters. Bisset's character obviously had psychological problems, but she did think the boy (McCarthy) was over 21 (so much for charges of pedophilia). The Bisset/McCarthy "romance" sets up the crisis (Lowe discovering that his best friend is sleeping with his mother) which tests the boys' friendship. The climax is the fight, which desolves into a reaffirmation of their freindship. The film is quite funny in places, escpecially in the opening scenes, involves a bit of the coming-of-age spin, and actually has some depth as it explores the development, testing, and survival of friendship. An extra delight in this film is the debut (I think) of John Cusack; small part, but right on the money.

Definatly one of my fave films from the eighties. A romantic teen comedy dealing with love and sexual expierences. Andrew Mcarthy plays Johnathan a shy introvetrd high school student who attends a posh all boys private school, his roomate Skip Played very well by Rob lowe is the sexually charged playboy who gets the both of them into a lot of trouble. When one night Johnathan is pressured By Skip and fellow peers to go out on the town and have a sexual encounter. After making a fool of himself at seedy bar Johanthan meets an older,viavicous woman by the name of Ellen and the two embark on a passionate night of lovemaking(Especally in the elevator scene)But unknowing to Johanthan the older woman he is sleeping with is the mother to his best friend and roomate Skip. An outragous comedy dealing with a subject people can relate to, The pressures of having sex the need to feel wanted and respected by people around you. It`s not often a story like this is made into a comedy but the producers did a great job in doing so. Both Andrew Mcarthy and Rob Lowe did very well and were belivable in their roles.
