Storyline

Jeannie, a teenage girl attending Amorosa High, joins the school cheerleading squad as a means of finally attaining the success and social independence that was out of reach in the strict household her parents maintain. The liberated attitude of her new friends becomes all the more evident when they come up with a plan to help the football team win the big game by kidnapping and raping everyone on the opposing team until they're too tired to even take the field.

Alternate Versions

Recent airings on Showtime Beyond and The Movie Channel in the USA is the complete uncut version which runs 84 minutes. Major additions includes much more sex/nudity including a orgy sequence where the cheerleaders sleep with their own team members. This scene is heavily cut in the R rated version only showing the very end of the sequence when everyone is worn out. The heavily cut R version run between 70-73minutes depending on the source. Current rights holders are unknown since their were no opening logos on the cable showing. The print may be from Anchorbay Entertainment or MGM (who have aired plenty of rare uncut cult films on the stations). Prism VHS edition claims an 84-minute running time but is heavily cut & runs 70 minutes. Meanwhile earlier video releases, some which state "original uncut version" on the cover, have 75 minutes listed (though, as with many early releases, the time listing could be wrong). See more »

Dumb but...
1 October 2003 | by rhwellsSee all my reviews

The only reason I like this film is that part of it (outside shots) were done at my alma mater, Monta Vista High. In fact, when the film came out, I was too young to see it.

Our School District, anxious for the money paid for use of the school during the summer months as a setting, thought that the film was about life in high school (it was tentatively titled High School Daze) and didn't bother to read the script.

Of course, they changed the name of the school for the film, so for the Yearbook in 1973 we snuck in all sorts of references to the film that managed to slip by the faculty. I still have a copy of an ad for the film in my old yearbook.

Sometimes, it's fun to see how easily bureaucrats can be fooled.
