Summer School Appreciation #4 - Can I call my folks and tell them I won't be coming home... ever?

Summer School Appreciation Thread



Summer School is a 1987 comedy film directed by Carl Reiner. It stars Mark Harmon as a high school gym teacher who is forced to teach a remedial English class during the summer. It co-stars Kirstie Alley and Courtney Thorne-Smith. The original music score was composed by Danny Elfman.

On the last day of school before summer vacation, physical education teacher Freddy Shoop (Mark Harmon) is preparing to leave on a vacation to Hawaii with his girlfriend, Kim. Vice principal Phil Gills (Robin Thomas) informs several underachieving students, including easily distracted Pam (Courtney Thorne-Smith); "nocturnal" Larry, a male stripper (Ken Olandt); football jock Kevin (Patrick Labyorteaux); pregnant Rhonda (Shawnee Smith); geeky Alan (Richard Steven Horvitz); dyslexic Denise (Kelly Jo Minter); intimidating Jerome (Duane Davis), and two horror-film-obsessed underachievers, Dave (Gary Riley) and Francis, a.k.a. 'Chainsaw' (Dean Cameron), that they must attend summer school for remedial English.

After the teacher scheduled to teach the class (Carl Reiner) wins the lottery and immediately quits work, Gills searches for a replacement among the teachers still on school grounds, but each manages to evade him after learning what he wants them to do. He finally manages to corner Shoop, and blackmails him into taking the job or risk losing tenure.
