I’m going to try a new type of review here on Mutant Reviewers, an experiment that began with a rather impulsive purchase from Amazon. I was doing a search for the third Meatballs film (which isn’t currently out on DVD, alas) when I came upon a “Too Cool for School Collection.” It was almost too good to be true: 12 so-called cult comedies, mostly from the 80s, for $5.01. Oh, I knew it was bad, even before I learned that they were all Crown International Pictures films (Mystery Science Theater 3000 loves CIP movies, if you need a reference), but how could I resist? Twelve! For five bucks!
And so I thought I’d go through these on a casual basis, and perhaps semi-live blog them instead of doing our typical review format. First up on the docket is the 1987 film Jocks (box office gross: $120,000), which is an interesting title for what is clearly a tennis movie. Are tennis athletes “jocks?” I guess technically, but I would never be afraid of one as a geek in school.
