LOSIN' IT: Coming-of-age sex comedy about a group of teenage friends traveling to Mexico to lose their virginity. During their trip they pick up a wacky lady also going to Mexico to get a quickie divorce.
THE LAST AMERICAN VIRGIN: Arguably the standard bearer for the teen sex comedies of the early 1980s, this story of the sexual misadventures of Gary, a hapless, embarrassingly chaste pizza delivery guy hoping to "lose it," has it all: gratuitous pizza parlor settings, a Devo soundtrack, a locker room penis contest, weird exchange students, crab lice, a fat-kid schlemiel, and Diane Franklin as the Nice New Girl in Town (a role she reprises in 1985's BETTER OFF DEAD). Look for treble-voiced Kimmy Robertson (Lucy from TV's "Twin Peaks") as the story's actual nice girl, whom Gary passes up in the climactic kegger scene.
