Alternate Versions

After the success of films such as My Tutor and Private Lessons, and Joan Collins renewed popularity after her appearance in Dynasty, this 1979 film was re-worked with additional scenes and a misleading advertising campaign. The new scenes featured an unconvincing nude double for Collins' in scenes of her character seducing a youth, and the film promoted as an older-woman seduction story. A billboard showing a concealed nude image of Collins greatly angered the actress. See more »

How did this miss a Razzie Award?
17 August 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

It never ceases to amaze me that in these films such good looking players are always cast as kids who can't seem to get anywhere with women. Positively ludicrous but I think films like Homework aren't to stimulate the mind. They operate somewhat south of the border.

Michael Morgan who I learned was Yvonne DeCarlo's son has sex on his mind all the time. He's even seeing the school guidance counselor Carrie Snodgrass who certainly has done better work.

He's trying very hard to score with next door neighbor Erin Donovan. But she only wants to make the swim team and she's constantly in the pool. But her mom Joan Collins gets her mojo going every time she sees Morgan. Guess what happens?

There's also a subplot with the same issue as Morgan's friend Lanny Horn tries to lose his virginity and it's French teacher Lee Purcell gives private lessons.

Morgan and Horn look they would have women lining up for them. Just once I'd like to see one of these films made with somebody who really hasn't gotten to first base yet. That will never happen.

Sadly I learned Michael Morgan was a homcide victim in 1999 and the case was never solved. A tragedy also is that this is the poor man's career role.
