box was kind enough to support MeFi with a donation. Their request was for six films about high school or college. That was too easy, so I limited myself to high school. I'll be using the tag #EnduringHighSchool

Donate $25 or more to MeFi and you can MeMail me a request for a themed day of your own. I'll fill up the sidebar on FF with six movies that fit your theme.

Yes it has, and I am going to rectify that as soon as I get off work.

I thought this movie was great, and the condom scene was both the first 'safe sex scene' I've ever seen in a movie and (spoiler: the condom was old and worn out) perfect.

I always thought Kid and Play both deserved more movies. I guess the 'eraserhead' look was kind of specific.

They did get two House Party sequels, as well as Class Act.
