"...Entertaining....Handled in a very tongue-in-cheek fashion....Howard is a find..."

Product Description:

Arliss Howard (FULL METAL JACKET) stars as Nick Dunbar, a tough cop who goes undercover in a local high school to prove the innocence of his younger brother (Loren Dean), who has been accused of murdering a teacher. Nick soon finds himself face-to-face with a power-crazy principal (Robert Stack), a school bully, quirky teachers, and all the other things that made him hate high school the first time around. However, as Nick tries desperately to solve the crime, he becomes increasingly involved in his newly adopted 1980s punk persona, reveling in the youthful experience, and falling in love with a pretty English teacher (Suzy Amis). A delightful combination of comedy and suspense that features a delirious cast of eccentric characters including George Wendt, Diane Ladd, and Abe Vigoda.

Plot Synopsis:

Yet all is not smooth sailing as Nick Dunbar (Arliss Howard) finds himself coping with the school bully, a megalomaniac principal, eccentric teachers, and all the other things that made him hate high school the first time around.
