Any info on Up the Creek (1984)?

I know it's a bad movie, but it's a guilty pleasure that I've always wanted to get on DVD. Does anyone have any info on this movie?

I think I saw this movie once on TV, many many years ago. For whatever reason I remember it quite well, although I couldn't remember the title. When I described it, someone thought this was it, and I think it is. Seeing the spoof of it on that episode of Futurama brought back the memories. I'd like to see it again.

If I had money and status in the business, I'd definately target movies like this for DVD distribution. And set it up in such a way that it's a "B" movie Criterion Collection.Put out as nice a transfer and extras as possible, and more importatnly, commentary on these films, because I"m sure there are plenty of interesting stories there in. Call it the "Up All Night" collection, or whatever. I think it would definately turn a profit. Anyway, if I did this, this would definately be in the opening wave of releases. It's not Kane, but there is room for everyone, and I'd rather my tits and ass packaged like this, than that painful melodrama that populates late night Cinemax now.

It was an 80's greatest hits comp of the sex comedy genre, with people from Animal House & Porky's, plus Doogie Howser's dad as the bad guy! I'd love to see this & Doctor Detroit with Dan Aykroyd.

I'd love to see Doctor Detroit on DVD.

My greatest guilty pleasure comes out on DVD in a few months. Spirit of '76, starring David Cassady and Devo!
