  • Production

    The film was originally known as Road Trip. It was an early appearance by Mariska Hargitay who said the producer wanted her to do a nude sequence but she refused. "They compromised a little and I compromised a little," she said. "Originally my part had a little bit of nudity but I don't do nudity."

    Box office

    Jocks was released in 1987 but never received a wide release. The film grossed only $120,808, making it one of the larger box office failures of 1987.

    For the most part, the film was either ignored or attacked by critics. David Cornelius of DVD talk.com gave the film a negative review saying,

    The script is rambling and forgetful... its characters lack the very charm the movie is convinced it's oozing, the tennis sequences are maddeningly dull, the romance is vacant. This is the kind of movie that thinks it's a blast because it shows us college kids getting drunk and leering at women, not realizing that you need to put in these things called "jokes" to make such a premise work.

    Jocks has been seen by so few people that it has a "not available" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
