Little Darlings pits Kristy McNichol against Tatum O'Neal as their characters battle to see which girl can gain the first sexual conquest, and lose her innocence in the process. Summer camp is the setting for this 1980 teen romantic comedy, yet Little Darlings somehow escapes the raunchiness and corny hi-jinks typical of the genre. Instant rivals from opposite sides of the status spectrum, street savvy Angel (Kristy McNichol) and seemingly sophisticated Ferris (Tatum O'Neal) vie for the chance to see who can shed her virginity first, dividing the allegiance of their fellow campers who place bets on the outcome. A boy from the gender-segregated camp conveniently situated across the lake, Randy (Matt Dillon) is the hunky object of Angel's quest. Meanwhile, Ferris pursues the suave, but inappropriately older, swim coach, Gary (Armand Assante). A pop soundtrack featuring the likes of Blondie serves as a fitting accompaniment to this distinctively '80s story about a universal rite of passage.
