A hugely enjoyable 80's teen comedy treat

Nice, but awkward and still virginal high school senior Bobby Crystal (a charming performance by the hunky Matt Lattanzi) flunks his French class, so his overbearing sleazy jerk wealthy dad (a perfectly smarmy Kevin McCarthy) hires the sweet, yet alluring tutor Terry Green (a winningly sexy and vibrant portrayal by the gorgeous Caren Kaye) to teach him French over the summer so he can pass a crucial exam and still get into college. Naturally, Bobby and Terry wind up having a steamy affair. Director George Bowers, working from a fairly thoughtful and sincere script by Joe Roberts, maintains a steady pace and a pleasant lighthearted tone throughout. Yeah, there's the expected tasty distaff nudity and raucous raunchy humor, but amid all that racy stuff we also get a considerable and refreshing amount of real heart and warmth. Lattanzi and Kaye make for attractive and appealing leads; their love scenes are surprisingly tender and erotic. The ever-wacky Crispin Glover contributes a hysterically goony turn as Bobby's horny nerd friend Jack. Moreover, there's sound acting by Arlene Golonka as Bobby's ditsy mom, Bruce Bauer as slimy yuppie Don Sylvestor, Clark Brandon as Bobby's smoothie buddy Billy, and the insanely cute Amber Denyse Austin as Bobby's fetching gal pal Bonnie. Popping up in nifty bit roles are Kitten Natividad as a buxom prostitute, Jewel Shepard as a fantasy girl, and future director Katt Shea as a mud wrestler. The infectiously bouncy soundtrack, some red hot aerobics, and those choice garish 80's fashions (gotta love those leg warmers and leotards!) give this flick a certain funky Greed Decade period charm. Mac Ahlberg's glossy cinematography gives the picture a sparkling bright look. Best of all, we even get a solid and positive central message about doing what you want to do with your life. A total delight.

Work with her.

It is summer time and Bobby (Matt Lattanzi) who has been preoccupied with sex has failed French and won't be able to go to Yale unless he passes a make-up exam with an 85. His goal is to pass the test with the help of a tutor (Caren Kaye) and get Crispin Glover in a bow-tie, laid. He has luck at the former.

The film is a teen sex comedy and is known for its many nude scenes, the sole reason for watching the film...it wasn't that funny.

Nudity: Adult film star Kitten Natividad; TV star Caren Kaye; Graem McGavin, "B" movie actress Jewel Shepard, writer/director Katt Shea.

Parlez Vous Francais?

It really gets me how these teenage comedies concerning young men losing their virginity is always cast with kids who look they should have no problem in that direction. Certainly that would be the case with both Matt Lattanzi and Clark Brandon. As for Crispin Glover who is best known for being George McFly in Back To The Future he's just comic relief in any event.

These three just graduated and both Glover and Lattanzi just can't quite get it done. Lattanzi has another problem he's failed French and so his father Kevin McCarthy gets him a French tutor with Caren Kaye. That proves to be quite the education.

My Tutor has a few comic moments. Maybe the best performances are Lattanzi's clueless mother Arlene Golonka and Bruce Bauer as Kaye's typical Reagan era venture capitalist. The idea for him is speculation is the way to make millions. He's almost a prototype for the 80s.

A bit better than some of these films, but no great shakes.
