    What about "Screwballs"?

    The lead character was named Purity Busch. [​IMG]

    I love Malibu Bikini Shop, I still have it on VHS, from when it was on USA's Up All Night(Damn that brings back memories)[​IMG]

    Anchor Bay will be releasing Pretty Smart(later this year) with Patrica Arquette..GREAT MOVIE!

    and Jesse,

    Anchor Bay WILL be releasing Cheerleaders UNCENSORED!!! later this year.

    Another vote for
    Ski Patrol and Ski School(would really love to have Cameron commentary)

    Hey, how about Jailbait! and Just A Little Harmless Sex? Not 80s, but in the same general category and just announced by Artisan for 6/17 releases. Uh...aspect ratio info not included yet.

    Ah such memories! Screwballs had a sequel called Loose Screws.

    Anyone remember Cherry Hill High or Hot T-Shirts? [​IMG]

    Private Resort?? [​IMG] The Joy of Sex? The Party Animal???

    I've added all of these titles to my new thread:

    The Massive All-New "Movies We Want on DVD" Poll

    "Pretty Smart" was from the producers of "Hardbodies"- I have it on VHS but will probably pick up the DVD too!
    "Gas Pump Girls" needs to be released just because it was filmed near where I live- I went out to the place it was filmed the day after seeing it- need to take a picture of myself there holding the LD.

    I'd buy The Stud (dir. Quentin Masters, 1978). Joan Collins, a swimming pool... IMDB user comment: "the whole film is rather too raunchy" [​IMG]
    Anchor bay has the three Emmanuelle titles up for release in new anamorphic transfers.

    There used to be a plethora of soft films shown on one of our pay channels, some not even listed in the IMDB as far as I can tell. One was "Venus", shot in Greece, about a company looking for a model for their suntan lotion...

    The made for TV Lake Consequence had some steamy scenes as well.

    Just repeating a few that have already been mentioned and some new additions:

    Mischief
    Private School
    Private Lessons
    The Wild Life
    The Last American Virgin
    Private Resort
    My Tutor
    Fairytales
    The First Time

    Not so much "T&A flicks", but great teen films of the era with T&A:
    Valley Girl
    Reckless
    Massacre at Central High

    Great news on the Cheerleaders films coming from Anchor Bay.

    On a final note, I saw a no-budget, barebones release of Second Time Lucky with the beautiful Diane Franklin of The Last American Virgin at Best Buy. This was a release similar to The Wraith and Trick or Treat releases that have been talked about before.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned:

    GOIN' ALL THE WAY
    GETTIN' IT ON
    or
    JOYSTICKS!

    I love these movies and would gladly pick up any such releases, providing they all look right.

    Although this T&A movie was released in 1990, I would love to see Girlfriend from Hell released on DVD in its OAR. I haven't seen this movie in years. I watched it on Comedy Central whenever i had the time.

    Dude, I have Joysticks on laserdisc! [​IMG] I don't think Getting It On ever came out on LD though, that movie is a classic though! One of the local TV stations here once ran it uncut late at night!

    With so many of them, I didn't think anyone paid attention to the polls section. I haven't been there in years.
