House Party

Foul language proliferates this pointless yarn about teens who plan a house party. Chris wants to go to the party, but after a fight with three bullies at school, the principal sends a note home to his father who then orders Chris to stay at home. Chris disobeys and sneaks out but has the misfortune of running into the bullies again. He finally gets to the party where he shows off his musical skills to Sidney (a girl) who is attracted to Chris.

Featured Animal Action

After Chris walks Sidney home she invites him in, but just as things are getting serious, her folks arrive and Chris sneaks down the back stairs. When Sidney's little dog won't stop barking at Chris, he puts the dog in an unlit barbecue and places the lid over it to keep him quiet. Chris bumps into the bullies again and they give chase with a baseball bat. The bullies are temporarily distracted by an alley rat which they stop to club. (You don't see any actual contact.) A Doberman also takes up the chase. Although the plot is lacking, there are some appealing performances by young talent.
