Comedy, Music | 1979 | PG. 1hr 33min
CAST: P.J. Soles, Vincent Van Patten, Clint Howard DIRECTOR: Allan Arkush, Joe Dante WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES

Teen punkette Riff Randall (P.J. Soles of CARRIE and HALLOWEEN) has one abiding fantasy: to meet the dreamy Ramones, and get them to perform one of her songs. Standing in her way is Principal Togar (Warhol star Mary Woronov), who runs Vince Lombardi High like a despot — until the boys from Forest Hills lead a student body putsch and rock the school down to its foundations. A tribute to the after-school bedroom sexual awakening, when one daydreams of Joey joining you in the shower.

Reviews
A bonafide love letter to the punk juggernauts that ruled music in the seventies and eighties.
Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
Nothing is taken seriously and nothing should be -- it's only rock 'n' roll.
