by Billy St. John, directed by Penny Chinn

The “in-crowd” is too involved trying to get parts in the movie that’s going to be filmed at their school to notice nerdy new student Jane.

When villain Gerald Snively and his sidekick, Melinda Mooch, hit Oilwell, Texas, it's rack and ruin from start to finish.

But naturally good triumphs and “all’s well with oil wells.”
