THE COMEDY THAT PUTS ZIP INTO BEING A TEEN…
Gary, Rick and David are American teens with one thing on their mind. They move from party to party, trying out their latest chat-up lines, which usually ends in miserable failure for Gary, as he’s more interested in finding true romance than a quick fumble in someone’s parents’ bedroom. So when Karen arrives at their school, Gary falls head over heels in love, but Rick’s baser intentions towards her threaten to break up their friendship for good.
Championed by Eli Roth (Hostel) as one of the most underrated films of its era, The Last American Virgin is a raucous but also surprisingly intelligent and sobering look at the hideousness of growing up, peer pressures, misplaced expectations and unforeseen consequences.
It’s also a superb snapshot of the early Eighties music scene, with the soundtrack featuring Blondie, Devo, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Police, U2 and many others.
