Genre Guesstimation – My Tutor (1983)

The idea behind this feature (Genre Guesstimation) is for me to watch a bunch of new movies (or ones that I haven’t seen many times) from the chosen monthly GG genre in order to expand my knowledge of movies within that particular genre.

This month’s Genre has been chosen by Christopher Cooper of Angelman’s Place and we will be reviewing our favorite 80’s Teen Sex Comedies

Please get me your submissions by the 25th of March by sending them to

Try to think out of the box! Great choice Christopher!

Let’s see if I felt that this movie would be worthy of being in the company of my others favorite movies in the genre of 80’s Teen Sex Comedies.

“You guys are ridiculous! I mean, I can’t believe it! You don’t even get laid in a whorehouse!” – Billy

Number of Times Seen – at least twice (27 Mar 2000 and 14 Mar 2019)

Brief Synopsis – A high school senior who must pass a summer school test in order to be accepted into an Ivy League University runs into problems when he falls in love with his beautiful French tutor.

My Take on it – This is a film that I saw years ago and didn;t recall much about it besides what the poster infers.

Once again, here is a mediocre 80’s sex comedy that doesn’t have much of a plot and seems to only be a ploy to try and show T & A as the characters all try to find a way to “nail anything that moves”

This story makes no sense from any standpoint that one looks at it from and it surprised me that someone actually paid money to get this film made.

There is no real chemistry between the characters and since that is usually the basis for a romance in a film, it makes everything else completely moot.

The story is completely unbelievable and it’s hard to imagine a scenario where such antics would actually work.

The lack of a coherent plot makes this film quite hard to find interesting or even enjoyable in the very least.

Bottom Line – Another silly 80’s sex comedy that makes so little sense from so many standpoints. There is no chemistry whatsoever between the characters and it’s quite hard to believe that thing would happen in the way the story is shown. this film seems like an excuse to try and show lots of T & A but fails at having a coherent plot that would make things enjoyable or at least interesting in some form or another.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – At the time the movie was made star Matt Lattanzi was in a relationship with Olivia Newton-John. They would marry in 1984, the year after it was released. The pair divorced in 1995. (From IMDB)

Genre Grandeur Worthy? – Not at all. Another complete dumb film in this genre that is a complete waste of time watching.

Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
