menu screen Synopsis:
It’s final week at Ridley High and the students are dumb as ever.  To pass their senior year, the female students find that their teachers are willing to raise their grades for sexual favors.

Loose Times at Ridley High is presented with an English 2.0 Mono track, which sounds as if it is the original audio track for the film.  As can be expected, the sound is very flat and tinny at some points.  There are also some places where there is no sound what-so-ever.  These points aren’t during dialog portions or sex scenes, so this may have been done in the original version, I can’t remember any more.  The dialog is clear throughout the entire film.  VCX hasn’t included any foreign language tracks or subtitle options for the film.

screen shot Loose Times at Ridley High is presented in the full screen aspect ratio of 1.33:1.  I don’t know if this is the original aspect ratio for the film and given the time period the film was released it could go either way.  There is no indication while watching the film that it isn’t being presented in its original aspect ratio.  The picture presentation on the disc is poor and there is no reason for it.  For a change VCX used a decent print of the film for the master containing some artifacts and occasional glitches.  The color levels are appropriately set.  The problem is the disc is plagued by pixels, apparently due to too low of a bit rate, causing a lack of definition throughout the film.  There is no reason for this given the short run time of the film and the fact that the film is the only thing, besides the menu, contained on the disc so there was plenty of room.  The picture is watchable, but you aren’t going to be happy with it.

Special Features:
VCX, as per their recent norm, has included no extras what-so-ever for this title.  No photo galleries, not even previews for other releases.

screen shot Navigation:
There are eight chapters available from the main menu for Loose Times at Ridley High.  They are identified by a still frame picture from the sex scene that they go to.  There is a time code for the feature film encoded on the disc.  Given the length and style of the film, the available chapters are acceptable, but more would be preferable.

General Review:
I pop this disc into my DVD player and sit back on the couch prepared to see how VCX has ruined another one of my favorite classic films.  As the film starts, I see to my amazement that the print is in decent shape, not the best for its age, but better than many of the prints that I have seen on VCX titles.  The colors seem right, I’m just starting to think that maybe, just maybe they haven’t wrecked this title as well when the action starts and pixels show up all over the screen.  And now I know how they are going to wreck this title, by using too low of a bit rate.  And why I ask, since there are no extras on the disc, there is plenty of room for the film, there was no need for this.  This is just the senseless ruining of a classic title.  I start to wonder why I keep laying down good money for discs from VCX after seeing how they have destroyed so many of my favorite films in the past and then I remember VCX, especially after their recent acquisition of Collectors Video and TVX, holds most of my favorite classic films in their library.  So the end answer is, I’ll end up doing it again and again hoping that they will eventually figure out what they are doing and stop ruining my favorite films.

screen shot As with most adult films from this time period, the plot is more of a setting than an actual story.  The film is basically a fantasy set at a private school for girls.  There is plenty of room in the film for hijinks in-between the sexual interludes though as the girls spy on each other and try to steal the answers to the upcoming test. 

One of the best aspects of the classic films is that the cast doesn’t look like porn stars.  In the films of today, we have the females with the enhanced breasts that look like an adult star.  Back when this film was made though, more often than not, the females look like the average girl next door.  This film is one of those cases.  None of the females featured in the film are ravishing beauties, but that makes the film better.

screen shot I have to admit, I always enjoy a good school girl theme film where the girls are of legal age and this film succeeds in this category.  The sex scenes aren’t the half hour ones found in films today nor do they feel the need to use every sexual act and position each time.  Instead the sex scenes fit into the plot much better and only use the sexual acts necessary for what fits.  The sexual themes in the film are oral and vaginal sex with pussy fingering, lesbianism, female masturbation and school girls.  For viewers that care about condom use, there are no condoms used in the film.

The film has some decent special effects, especially considering that this is an adult film and thus meaning it had a limited budget.  Part of the reason that I like the classic films so much is because most often the directors were attempting to actually make a film.  There are some technical inadequacies however, for instance there is a point in the beginning where a boom mic is visible at the top of the screen.

screen shot The Scenes:
The first scene brings us an unknown female with Paul Thomas for a scene that starts out with a blow job.  They go into the vaginal sex and Paul pulls out to cum.  The second and third scenes are interlaced.  The second scene features Kimberly Carson giving Tom Byron a blow job.  Kimberly jerks off Tom to make him cum.  The third scene features Renee Summers masturbating.

The fourth and fifth scenes are interlaced.  The fourth scene features an unknown female and Eric Edwards.  The scene starts out with a blow job before going into the vaginal sex.  They then head into a 69 position before the female jerks off Eric to bring him to climax.  The fifth scene features two unknown females for some lesbian action.  The scene starts out with some pussy fingering and pussy eating before they head into the 69 position.  The sixth scene features an unknown female, Renee Summers and Tom Byron and starts out with some pussy eating combined with a blow job before going into a vaginal sex and pussy eating combo.  Tom then gets a blow job before the scene goes back to the pussy eating and vaginal sex combo before going into just vaginal sex for the conclusion.  Tom pulls out to cum.

screen shot The seventh scene features an unknown female and Tom Byron for some vaginal sex.  There is no visible cum shot.  The eighth scene features Kimberly Carson and Tom Byron for a scene that starts out with some pussy eating.  They then go into the vaginal sex before Kimberly gives Tom a blow job.  Kimberly jerks Tom off to bring him to climax.  The ninth and final scene in the film features Bunny Bleu and Paul Thomas for some vaginal sex.  There is no cum shot for this scene.

Parting Thoughts:
Loose Times at Ridley High is a great film from the very end of the golden age but unfortunately, VCX has ruined it for this DVD presentation.  Due to the problems with the picture quality, I can only recommend this film to die-hard fans that must have it in digital form.  For all others, I recommend that you wait in hopes that someday VCX will allow another company to distribute their films and they will do a better job with it.
