Rating:
R
Class is a comedy, directed by Lewis John Carlino. Jonathan Ogner (Andrew McCarthy) begins his prep-school career on the wrong foot by showing up in uniform. He is immediately pinned as a loser and laughed at before anyone even knows his name. His roommate, Skip (Rob Lowe), is worse than everyone else. Instead of laughing openly, he decides to prank John by telling him that the prep school had a tradition where all the senior boys walk around, wearing women's underwear. Together the two boys go parading around, wearing panties and bras. Skip falls behind and disappears and John is again left as a target for ridicule. He is crushed by this and refuses to talk or associate with Skip. After seeing John run away crying, Skip realizes just how harsh he's been and goes off to find him. John, meanwhile, pulls a prank on Skip by faking his own suicide. Through this act, the two boys become friends, and Skip vows to find John a girl so he can lose his virginity before graduation.moreless
