Before I go any further, this movie is such a guilty pleasure for me and I love it, I'm man enough to admit it.
As for the movie itself, I will do my best to explain, starting with the plot. Bobby (Matt Lattanzi) has just graduated from high school, sort of. Bobby has flunked his French class which is the catalysts to the amazing plot of this prolific film. Since Bobby has failed French he will not be permitted into Yale. This notion doesn't sit well with Bobby's father, so daddy pulls some strings, since he is a Yale alumni, and a compromise is made: if Bobby can pass a French exam of 85% or higher, he can go to Yale in the fall.
Consequently Bobby only has the summer to prepare for this test, so daddy gets him a private tutor. Now to make matters even more exciting, Bobby's private tutor is a sexy blonde, 29 years of age named Terry (Caren Kaye). I don't know about you, but Bobby should be thinking really hard about buying his dad a nice father's day gift. The quagmire now is can Terry bring up Bobby's French skills so he can score at least an 85%?
This is the part I never saw coming, but Terry and Bobby become involved intimately and romantically. This relationship develops despite the fact that Terry is chic and a world traveled woman, and Bobby is a naïve and inexperienced young man. It appears that this attraction develops out of no where, at least on Terry's end. A great deal of things are thrown at this unorthodox couple; the difference in age, the grapple of "education or love making", Bobby's father and Terry's ex-boyfriend. Yet this is one summer either one of them will forget anytime soon, but will their love last?
There is also a funny, yet humdrum subplot with two of Bobby's friends. They spend the better half of the movie trying to get Bobby and themselves laid in some of the most precarious and droll situations. This does produce some laughs and plenty of gratuitous nudity. One of Bobby's friends is played by no other than Crispin Glover A.K.A George McFly from "Back to the Future". Who in many ways appears deranged throughout the entire film, a definite plus.
I also have to say that Bobby was somewhat androgynous in this movie. He was really super sensitive and many times spoke in a high pitch, whiney voice. To listen to Bobby complain or protest against Terry tutoring him in French was actually really hilarious and vexing simultaneously. I really found it interesting that Terry was into Bobby, it screams more about the demons in her past than any skeletons that might be in Bobby's closet.
It was very amusing that Bobby's home in many ways mirrored a college campus. It appears that his home goes on for miles and miles. Consequently, Bobby rides a motor scooter that would fit the profile of Peter Parker more than a rich teenager from California. Bobby's rich father couldn't buy him a car, rather a motor scooter. Perhaps daddy is in the oil business and not giving Bobby car is adding to the family's wealth. Just a side note, there is a scene with Bobby and scooter that I found so comical I had to turn the DVD off and walk away from the television for ten minutes.
I am totally unconvinced that Bobby's father, being Yale alumni and three steps below God in the financial department couldn't pull more strings to get Bobby into Yale. Why would an elective high school course like French hold so much merit on whether or not student should get into Yale? I guess with respect to plot, a French tutor is much sexier than a tutor in Botany.
There are several "MacGuffins" (events/things/characters basically unimportant to the story, yet are present) in "My Tutor". For instance, Bobby's mother being an airhead, Terry swims in the nude at night, the focus on Bobby's maid and gardener only speaking Spanish and Terry always exercising in a women's aerobic class that is an equation of Richard Simmons VHS multiplied by Jane Fonda Beta tape. Oh as for the bubble gum pop theme song, "You're my tutor, WHOO; teach me anything you want me to learn." If there is anyone out there that knows where I can find this song, I am not sure what your reward will be, but it will be worth it.
"My Tutor" was made in 1983, which was the beginning of a very memorable decade and this movie really showcases music, fashion, the hair and the carefree, yet somber attitude of the spirits living in the era. The day might come when we as a modern society are erased from the planet due to war, famine, global warming, political and/or religious genocide or yetis that will eat all people. Under the assumption this does transpire and some odd race of aliens visit Earth years in the future or a mutation of humans evolve on Earth millions of years from now. Both of these groups' sole purposes might want to understand the prior human race that inhabited the planet many, many moons ago. Giving these conditions, the DVD of "My Tutor" can and will provide a lucid picture and/or a time capsule of history in the 1980s.
