Despite its silly storyline, the film became the fifth highest-grossing of the year it was released, and it influenced many teen comedies to come, but what happened to the actors and actresses that worked on it ever since?

The Canadian-American teen comedy film followed the hijinks of a group of teenagers from the Angel Beach High School in Florida that are determined to lose their virginity, only to get in serious trouble and be ridiculed again and again.

Although released in 1982, the story is set in 1954, but the hilarious adventures of this team of misfits are timeless fun, even if some of its content wouldn’t be well received in our politically correct times.
