Peter and Paul take a look at Christopher Cain’s 1987 movie The Principal, starring James Belushi, Louis Gossett Jr, and Rae Dawn Chong.
Topics discussed include the intersection of the American high school picture and the vigilante film, depictions of race and ethnicity in these films, the connection between this film and Damian Lee’s Abraxas: Guardian of the Universe (1990), and The Principal’s awkward fusion of gritty urban drama and Jim Belushi goofiness.
