THE POM POM GIRLS (1976)
A pretty much plot-less look at high school hi-jinks in the 1970's. Stars a young Robert Carradine as a wild and crazy hot-roddin', football playin', horny school kid. He steals this other dude's girlfriend and they fight throughout the movie. Also some pranks are pulled on a rival school, there's a food fight and we actually do have a couple of scenes with girls and pom-poms. A really lighthearted film that never even approaches anything serious and can be amusing if you're in the right mood for it. The main downside of this thing is the lack of nudity. I'm not sure if the DVD I have is some PG-rated version or not but it was quite lacking in the boob department which is not what you would expect from a movie like this. The other bad thing is cult movie fan favorite Rainbeaux Smith is pretty much wasted in a small role. The ending is straight out of REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE with the big chicken race and even that is pulled off with only the slightest tease of any real tragedy happening.
