PAUSE IT: What do you see? A group of rowdy teen boys crowd around inside a high school locker room. The circumstances are familiar, they taunt and jeer their offscreen classmate in director Boaz Davidson’s The Last American Virgin (1982). Dressed for gym class in yellow t-shirts and matching black shorts the image is strong as it helps to exemplify the cruel mob mentality of high school and the pressures of conformity. But in this raunchy, offbeat, comedy revenge turns out to be a dish best served cold and you won’t want to miss what comes next.
