    Ran across an old VHS of Spring Break. Where are all the films like Ski School, Miracle Beach, Hot Dog: The Movies, Ski Patrol, and the rest of the Dean Cameron ouevre?
    What other guilty pleasures from years past are out there that haven't made it to DVD yet that seriously need to?

    Heh heh... I was thinking of Private School myself... added bonus of Phoebe Cates as the "good girl." (read: the one who keeps her clothes on)

    I second the vote for Betsy Russell! Still waiting for the Private School for Girls DVD (come on Universal, I don't ask for much).

    Is The Cheerleaders gonna be the uncut version? I have a copy of the Prism Entertainment VHS and imdb says this is an edited version but it was released uncut a few years before Prism put it out. I saw Revenge of the Cheerleaders on TV once and they zoomed-in on a lot of shots to hide the naughty stuff!

    I'd like to get Private School. Especially, if it included the alleged outtakes and deleted scenes. I heard there is more of Betsy in those scenes. [​IMG] And, who could say no to more of Betsy. [​IMG]

    Really? Where did you hear about outtakes or deleted scenes? I would love to see any if they exist? But something tells me that some kind of "special edition" with such footage would be too much to hope for.[​IMG]

    And Greg, I remember Tomboy and Mischief from my formulative years very well. [​IMG]

    Mischief is one of the 1980's T & A films which i would purchase once it makes it onto DVD but only IF Mischief is released on DVD in OAR. The character named Gene who is played by Chris Nash is the best in the movie. The IMDB says that FOX owns the rights to Mischief. FOX please release Mischief on DVD in OAR.

    Mischief was actually more than just T&A, IMHO. Good movie.

    Chris,

    I had heard that there is a longer (more revealing) version of Betsy's shower scene near the beginning of Private School. I think I had read about it around the time the film first came out.

    The rumor might be true because there is a bit of a jump cut between Betsy opening the shower curtain and her seeing the guy in the mirror. But, I don't know for certain.

    More recently, I heard that there was a Phoebe Cates shower scene that was cut. I read that at the Bare Facts (http://www.barefacts.com/) a few years ago. But, the author of the site didn't post this info, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Larry

    How about "Just one of the Guys" ? The movie is a pile of steaming mastadong dung, but it's good fun nonetheless.

    Wouldn't 9 1/2 weeks fall under this category?

    I think movies like 9½ Weeks, Mischief, and Reckless (Daryl Hannah) don't quite fall into this category. All three had crossed my mind, but all had a plotline that was quite serious in the story they wanted to tell, and the "T&A" was actually story-driven in a big way. Less so for Mischief, but still it got you into the young man's character and state of mind quickly so you could compare him to the rough biker dude later on.

    No, I hadn't included these three (and others) on my long list posted above because they weren't just T&A romps like the others mentioned. There's a difference between a film that's out-and-out a T&A flick, and one that's a "real" flick with some T&A thrown in just to help sell tickets. [​IMG]

    How about Up The Creek?

    Classic Tim Matheson needs to be released one way or another.
