The Last American Virgin is actually one of the better 1980s teenage comedies and a clear influence on the American Pie movies. The comedy is raunchy and oft funny but there’s good melodrama at its core including a finale that is surprisingly and satisfactorily depressing.

PLOT SYNOPSIS

The Last American Virgin, a coming-of-age story set in 80’s Los Angeles, is the story of a close-knit group of high school friends, Gary (LAWRENCE MONOSON), the loyal friend; Rick (STEVE ANTIN), the ladies man; and David (JOE RUBBO), the comic foil, and their exploits in pursuit of love… or at the very least… sex. By turns funny, dramatic and nostalgic, The Last American Virgin chronicles the ups and downs of friendship, romance, and the bittersweet memories of youth.

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5

No features were included.


VIDEO – 3.5/5

Olive Films releases The Last American Virgin onto Blu-ray presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and gave it a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture actually doesn’t look half bad considering the low budget and the fact the film is going on 30+ years old. Detail tends to be good and colors appear to be well balanced without appearing to be oversaturated. There were the occasional specs and scratches but nothing overwhelming or distracting.

AUDIO – 3.75/5

The movie includes a respectable enough DTS-HD Master Audio Stereo track which is rather strong providing for clear dialogue levels throughout while the catchy 1980s soundtrack gives the track good depth. It’s a fine lossless track that, like the video, perfectly serviceable.



OVERALL – 3.0/5

Overall, The Last American Virgin is actually one of the better 1980s teenage comedies and a clear influence on the American Pie movies. The comedy is raunchy and oft funny but there’s good melodrama at its core including a finale that is surprisingly and satisfactorily depressing. The Blu-ray released by Olive Films is pretty basic with no features but the video/audio transfers were both relatively impressive though the $30 SRP is a tad high.

  1. I really enjoyed this movie. I watched it last night for the first time. Gary was such a nice and really cute guy. The ending was sad . His eyes has tears in them . he should have got the girl. but still in all its a good movie and the 80’s were the best no doubt.
