’80s Party Comedy ‘Senior Week’ Available on DVD From MVD

The 1987 party comedy Senior Week is available on DVD from MVD Entertainment Group and Liberation Hall.

In the Animal House/Porky’s-inspired film, Everett and his party-hungry buddies embark on an all night road trip to the Florida beaches for a week of fun, sun and beautiful women. Mayhem ensues when two jealous girlfriends show up unexpectedly, along with a psycho teacher who’s hunting down Everett because he owes her an overdue term-paper.

‘R’-rated scenes for the film were shot inside Palisades Park Junior High School, which led to the temporary suspension of the principal who approved the filming for a location fee of $1,500. The story made local and national news, but a protest by students got him reinstated.
