Summer School ★★½ 1987 (PG-13)

A high-school teacher's vacation plans are ruined when he gets stuck teaching remedial English in summer school. It seems all these students are interested in is re-enacting scenes from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” learning to drive, and surfing. Actually, one of the better films of this genre, thanks mostly to Harmon's likeability. 98m/C VHS, DVD . Mark Harmon, Kirstie Alley, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Shawnee Smith, Robin Thomas, Dean Cameron, Gary Riley, Kelly Jo Minter, Fabiana Udenio, Beau Starr, Ken Olandt, Lucy Lee Flippin, Nels Van Patten; Cameos: Carl Reiner; D: Carl Reiner; W: Jeff Franklin; C: David M. Walsh; M: Danny Elfman.
