Yea...we were bad in Texas High Schools. This may have been the 70s the film D&C took place in but it might as well have been the 80s, too. Hell, we were up to no good in Intermediate School for that matter. Forget High School! Coincidentally, one year I was a jock hanging out with my party friends instead of the jocks. So, it was always a bit awkward whenever the jock crowd showed up at the mall and I was with the cool kids. lol. I would go over and say "what's up?". Then, go back to the cool kids. So, I can relate to that movie. Whenever the jocks got together, they were always spazzing out so I couldn't be around them.
Also, I went to UT in Austin when that film was made. One of my sort of friends was an extra in the film because he had the look. To this day, I always watch the film looking for him in a scene but never spot him. Haven't seen him to this day.
