Class (1983)

Jonathan is a new student at Vernon Academy, a prestigious prep school in Illinois for the offspring of wealthy Americans.

At first, he is the subject of practical jokes by his roommate Skip, but soon the two are firm friends.

After Jonathan manages to get himself banned for life from the nearby boarding school for girls, Skip sends him to a pick-up joint in nearby Chicago.

But instead of picking up girls, Jonathan is picked up himself, by Ellen (Jacqueline Bisset), an older woman. Complications ensue when he discovers who she really is – Skip’s mother.

This takeoff of The Graduate (1967) is preposterous from start to finish, but probably every teen male’s fantasy. The cast strains with a garbled script and undeveloped characters, and Cliff Robertson is wasted as the domineering, wealthy husband/father.
