Let's get it on: Hollywood's love affair with teen sex comedies
By S. James Snyder, Special to Metromix
Hollywood loves teenage boys. They freely spend their cash on movie tickets, DVDs and merchandise, and that’s why just about every summer blockbuster is targeted at the high school or college male.
If anything unites that demographic more than science fiction or special effects, it’s a collective fascination with booze and boobs. Maybe that’s why there’s such a reliable queue of teen sex comedies with stories that focus on male camaraderie, female nudity and alcohol-fueled antics.
With “Fired Up!”—admittedly one of the tamer examples—now available on DVD, we’re taking a look back through the most distinguished works of a most redundant genre.
