Pick-Up Summer (1980, George Mihalka)

"It's a summer of fun for two teenaged boys who spend their time chasing two sisters, annoying a biker gang, and basically getting into typical sophomoric hijinks whenever they can."

This film is just bad. It's just 2 wild teens being well, 2 wild teens. There are plenty of wild hi jinks and plenty of attempts to get laid for and hour and 40 minutes. Of course, this is all the backdrop to the first ever pinball championship that's happening at the end of summer. Who will ever win and get the trophy and get the respect of "the best pinball player in town! ?!

That's really about it. There are a couple of unintentional laughs here and there but not enough to make it a fun watch. I was lucky enough to watch it with a crowd of people who kept bashing the film out loud. .I thank the audience for making the film go by quick and somewhat making it a fun watch.
