Publically humiliated, the petite duo soon get an opportunity for payback when nice — and drop-dead-gorgeous — Theta Celeste Star becomes an ally and sets out to concoct a plan to bring her sorority sisters down, in particular Theta leader Vanessa Cage, a stunning 5-foot-8 blonde. Adding to the drama are a mix of horny teachers (Talon, James Deen) and McCray’s would-be boyfriend (Seth Dickens).
Sparks, whose previous works include the documentary short “Shenandoah” and the horror film “Rotkäppchen: The Blood of Red Riding Hood,” directs from a script he wrote based on a story conceived by AMKingdom proprietor Kim Nielsen. Both men are avid fans of teen comedies from the ‘80s and ‘90s, and it shows in their collaboration. Like “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” or “Porky’s,” story and character come first in ‘Revenge of the Petites,” giving the film its heart and allowing for it to be a little more than just a sex movie.
Technically, despite running a tad on the long side, the film looks great and captures a nice nostalgic vibe that should have viewers digging through their old VHS tapes for a John Hughes fix. Leads McCray, Diamond and Cage display impressive acting talent, and are backed by a strong supporting cast that includes Dickens, Heidi Hansen as McCray’s hot mom and a hilarious Kris Slater as McCray’s friend who just happens to be hot for her mother.
