Monday’s Pause and Toss Moment: Private School
Matthew Modine needed a career jump-start and the movie he chose was “Private School.” Interestingly enough, he teamed up with a star on the rise Phoebe Cates, who just came off of the biggest movie exposure (yes, pun intended) of her career with “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”
Add in Betsy Russell, a then-nobody in Hollywood with the exception of her appearance on an episode of “Family Ties“ (later she’d be a the star in the ”Saw“movie series). So, who would expect with these two in the same movie that it would make this box office flop a Pause and Toss success? A shower scene to start with.
