Hahah, caught this today on one of the movie channels. I had never heard of it. I was suprised to say the least to see Brad Pitt in this movie. Classic 80's slasher movie. Cheesey with slow chase scenes and creative deaths. Just what I like [Smile]

Anyone else seen this one?

I love Jill Schoelen but this movie was just okay.

Ya it's pretty bad but that tends to makes slasher films good. If you know what I'm saying [Smile]

"I just want to thank the student who drew the crude caricature of me in the boys lavatory. Although you were kind in your portrayal, I would like it if you kept your talents to the art class."

 -

Paula's (Jill Schoelen) your typical high school girl with boy problems. On one hand, you have school bad boy and basketball star Dwight (Brad Pitt) as her current boyfriend. On the other, you have Brian (Donovan Leitch), your typical teen who's been locked up in a mental hospital for the last five years for killing his father and has just been released trying to win her affection. What's a girl to do? To make things worse, people all around the school begin to turn up dead. All signs point to the crazy boy mentioned above, yet Dwight is becoming seemingly more unhinged by the day as well.

"Cutting Class" is infamous as the movie that was Brad Pitt's first turn as a leading man. Pitt claims this to be his worst movie ever, but I could name several that I would rank below this flick.

Okay...Horror/Comedy...bad idea...Martin Mull was lost in another movie it seemed just so he could deliver that clever line towards the end. And the totally lame basketball action makes "Teen Wolf" look like the NBA. Oh and that water cooler incident is beyond hilarious.

 -

With all that said, I'm a huge fan of Jill Schoelen and Donovan Leitch, so I actually enjoy this movie on occasion. Though Leitch's character must have been a mind reader/time traveler with his ability to appear and disappear on cue.

Let just put it this way....

"I'm the custodian of your f***ing lives!"
