Class

Class is anything but classy. About a brainy but virginal prep school student (Andrew McCarthy) who unwittingly begins an affair with his upper-class roommate's sexy mother (Jacqueline Bisset), film seems something like an unofficial remake of one of Bisset's first Hollywood efforts, the 1969 The First Time, in which she initiated the nerdy Wes Stern in the pleasures of the flesh. Throw in aspects of The Graduate, with the young fellow's best friend, instead of girlfriend, getting mad at the betrayal, and you get the idea.

McCarthy and Rob Lowe (as his roommate) carry most of the picture, and both acquit themselves reasonably well under the circumstances. Lewis John Carlino’s direction is frequently awkward notably in the nudity-less sex scenes.
