Pretty standard 80's comedy that might be of interest to horror movie fans due to the fact that Christopher Lee plays the head of the college in it. It is kinda weird to see Lee trying to be funny. He gets hit on by a transvestite in one of the few semi-humorous scenes. You also get SHAFT star Richard Roundtree as the coach of this team of misfit tennis players that include your stereotypical gay character, a psycho guy (played by Donald Gibb who was also the crazy guy, Ogre, in REVENGE OF THE NERDS), a wacky Spanish guy and a few preppies. Plus there's Mariska Hargitay, daughter of Jayne Mansfield, who's a big deal on some modern TV show I could care less about. For an 80's movie like this there isn't very much of the expected nudity or even anything all that funny going on. If you find tennis matches thrilling this might be for you but I found the whole thing to be pretty uninteresting and unfortunately typical of the era it was made in.
