   Students at the elite Dartmoor Academy, the "Stinkers" (four boys and a girl), as they're called by prim headmaster Morgan Brinway (B.D. Wong of "Seven Years in Tibet"), just can't resist a good joke. Unfortunately for Brinway, he is frequently their target and is continually getting hit in the crotch or on the head, or is falling down and hurting himself. The film's dependence on toilet humor becomes offensive after a short while, and in the process, the more redeeming aspects of this story are lost. Slappy the sea lion, whom the children liberate while on a field trip to the aquarium, is by far the most impressive character in the story. Starring B. D. Wong, Bronson Pinchot and Jennifer Coolidge. Directed by Barnet Kellman. Produced by Sid, Bill and Jon Sheinberg. Written by Bob Wolterstorff and Jon Sheinberg. A TriStar release. Comedy. Rated PG for some crude humor, mild language and slapstick violence. Running time: 78 min
