This film is about a group of high school students whose entire lives revolve around sex, and when they are finally going to have it. It is set during the 1950s in the south where racism runs deep and the confederate flag flies high. The boys go to a strip club in the next town over and try to get some time alone with the ladies, for a small fee. The club owner, Porky, fools them into thinking that they are going to get what they want, but when the boys are in a dark room awaiting their surpirise, he drops them into the lake outside. Porky's brother is the sherrif in the town and he comes to help Porky get rid of the high schoolers. The sherrif knocks out their headlights and fines them for it, hoping that they will never visit the establishment again. The boys have other plans and they plot their revenge against Porky and his brother throughout the film. In the end the high schoolers destroy Porky's club and get away with it. One of the boys' brother is the sherrif of their town so he reminds Porky that the boys are underage, so there is nothing he can do.
Racism is brought up throughout the film, and it drives several of the decisions made by the boys. Derrogatory terms are used for African Americans and Jews by the boys. In one scene in the locker room, one of the boys is trying to call a Jewish classmate a name but he gets it confused and says he wants to go fly a kite. In the end, the boy who used this term and the Jewish boy become friends and join forces to get Porky.
Before slutty Samantha in Sex and the City, Kim Cattrall plays Ms. Honeywell, a slutty gym teacher. She has sex with one of the gym coaches during the school day when all of the students can hear. She says that she doesn't go all the way, but clearly that is not the case. She is threatened to be fired, but it does not stop her.
