Product Description

THE COMEDY THAT PUTS ZIP INTO BEING A TEEN...

Gary, Rick and David are American teens with one thing on their mind. They move from party to party, trying out their latest chat-up lines, which usually ends in miserable failure for Gary, as he's more interested in finding true romance than a quick fumble in someone's parents' bedroom. So when Karen arrives at their school, Gary falls head over heels in love, but Rick's baser intentions towards her threaten to break up their friendship for good.

Championed by Eli Roth (Hostel) as one of the most underrated films of its era, The Last American Virgin is a raucous but also surprisingly intelligent and sobering look at the hideousness of growing up, peer pressures, misplaced expectations and unforeseen consequences.

It's also a superb snapshot of the early Eighties music scene, with the soundtrack featuring Blondie, Devo, The Human League, KC and the Sunshine Band, The Police, U2 and many others.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Last American Virgin 25 Sep 2013
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    This is the first Blu ray that i have purchased from Arrow Video and i have to say they did a phenomenal job. The PQ, considering the age of this film, is terrific. There are a few scenes with mild grain but nothing that took my attention from the film. I'm not much of an audiofile, but i have no complaints. This blu ray comes with 2 discs, the blu ray as well as a dvd copy, which i haven't viewed yet. Also comes with a booklet Diary of The Last American Vigin. In it are color stills, and fun facts about the film. Last but not least, this blu ray comes with a two-sided cover that has the original commissioned artwork for the film. The new cover which faces outward is somewhat similar to the original, (which is on the inside), but the character of Karen has her arm around the character of Gary. All in all, this is a terrific little time capsule that is well worth the price. Unfortunately this disc is region B locked so you need a region free player.

    5.0 out of 5 stars "COME TO ME, MY BIG BURRITO" 18 Oct 2013
    Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
    I love this movie! I was 16 back in '82 so I can really relate to the Gary character. He's your all around nice guy who sadly doesn't get the girl in the end. I like how the film starts off as your typical 80's teen comedy about sex and parties but then takes a more serious tone in the third act dealing with an unwanted pregnancy and betrayal.

    The best part of the movie is actually the soundtrack. For those of us who were around back then the music was indeed for the most part amazing. From The Police, The Cars, REO Speedwagon, Journey, etc.. and probably the best track used in the film is "Oh No" by The Commodores. It's a beautiful song that fits perfectly in certain scenes and always leaves a lump in my throat. :(

    What can you say about the ending other than it's heartbreaking and brutally honest. That look on Gary's face says it all. Most guys at some point in high school were in that same situation where they were totally smitten by a certain girl but she was oblivious to your feelings or simply attracted to another guy. That's what makes the last scene so powerful and memorable. Real life is not a feel good Hollywood storybook ending.

    The Arrow release (Region B only) is another winner for them. The transfer looks terrific with it's natural film grain in tact. Those tight close ups of Diane Franklin's beautiful face were made for blu-ray. The audio comes in loud and clear and the music as mentioned sounds great in surround sound. I also enjoyed the extras with new interviews from Gary & Karen and the writer/director Boaz Davidson

    Highly Recommended for a wonderful early 80's time capsule!!!
