This straight-to-video release, also known as Learning Curves, seems transplanted from the 1980s with its boy-gets-buxom-babe mentality, recalling My Tutor (1982) and other T A movies of that era. Director Bruce Leddy softens the setup a bit by handling the relationships with '90s sensitivity, though it does seem that many scenes are designed (often in the main character's mind) with the idea of getting Tia Carrere in her underwear. There's genuine warmth, if not very much substance, to this little movie, which finds its heart in examining the friendship between the characters played by Jason London, Alexondra Lee, and Zak Orth. Like many films released straight to video, it's clear there's not enough "there" for a theatrical release, but that doesn't make it utterly devoid of charms. Always derivative in formula, My Teacher's Wife borrows its idea for the narration, which is carried out by the cartoonist's drawings coming to life, from Savage Steve Holland's One Crazy Summer (1986).
