Prepsploitation: Making The Grade (1984)

Making The Grade is another of the 80s preppy movies, but it was particularly bad, follwoing a cliche format of upper class collision with the lower class.  What happens when Eddie Keaton (Judd Nelson), a streetwise kid from NYC, gets offered a boat load of money to pose as rich preppy Palmer Woodrow III (Dana Olsen) at an elite boarding school?  Yep, you can see the sight gags and potential for misunderstanding a mile away.  I’m afraid that the actors in this film were subjected to prepsloitation, but they accurately represent the look from that era.
