Screwballs II, also known as Loose Screws, is a 1985 Canadian teen sex comedy film.[1] It is a sequel to Screwballs.[1] It was one of the first releases from Roger Corman's Concorde Pictures.

Synopsis[edit]

Brad Lovett, Steve Hardman, Hugh G. Rection, and Marvin Eatmore are four get-nowhere boys who are forced into summer school, ending up at Cockswell Academy under the supervision of Principal Arsenault. The boys play a game where they earn points for every girl with whom they score. On misadventures of their own, they decide to go for the ultimate 100-point score, Mona Lott, the new French teacher, but when they are unable to get a shot at her, they end up in the unforgiving clutches of the principal. After all is lost, they take one final chance during the school's anniversary celebration.

Reception[edit]

The Los Angeles Times said the film was "the formula in excelsis. The only real difference is that it's been pushed further than usual, one of the hallmarks of Roger Corman, whose Concorde Pictures released it (you expect more from Corman). The movie is single-mindedly prurient, and scenarist Michael Cory has come up with the lewdest language this side of Hustler. Almost every line in the movie is either unprintable or a double entendre."[2]
