Looking for a 1980s teen comedy title

In the summer of 1986 I saw a comedy on HBO one night that had my brother and I laughing until our father came home and we had to shut it off. I think of this movie now and then for years and have never been able to find it. In the 15-20 minutes that we saw the movie had the following scenes:

- Some teens are in a car being pursued by some enemies of theirs. The driver pops a copy of "Ride of the Valkyries" into the tape deck and plays it as another teen mans a water balloon launcher that pelts the car riding behind them.

- Two of the teens go to a pornographic movie theater and sneak in squirt guns loaded with milk. They start making sounds as if they're excited and squirt the milk onto other movie goers, one of whom turns out to be a teacher of theirs.

- There is a montage scene in which one teen is seen dating a girl. I distinctly remember he takes her miniature golfing and swings his putter around in imitation of Charlie Chaplin twirling his cane.

 - Another scene began with a girl in the middle of two guys in muscle shirts as they did curls with barbells. They appeared to be the "heavies" in the film. Then our father came home and we had to turn off the TV.

Years ago I posted on the web and people suggested "Screwballs", or even "Screwballs II", but it was neither one of them.

Any help is appreciated.

It sounds familiar, but I can't quite place it. Will keep looking. Here's a bump for your question at least.
