The Pom Pom Girls (1976)
SInce this is Labour Day weekend, we wind down the summer with this innocuous teen exploitation comedy in which Robert Carradine and his pals raise hell and try to woo the opposite sex at the beginning of the school year. Although its obviously catering to the lowest common denominator of drive-in patrons, with its T&A (which isn't much) and infantile comedy, what surprises is the unusual depth given its characters. While even though this movie takes place during the school year, it has an autumnal "summer's end" feel to it, as though their youth is quickly giving way to maturity.
