For fifty weeks of the year, Fort Lauderdale, Florida is a small corner of tropical heaven, basking contentedly in the warm sun.

My mother sent me to see this film when I was about 9 or 10 expecting a good wholesome beach movie, and I was shocked! (If she only knew!). 1) A girl actually advocated pre-marital sex! (but was hypocritical about practicing her ideas) 2) Another girl actually did it! (although nothing was shown, not even kissing) 3) Another girl said she only wanted to have babies! (nothing new here, except for her honesty) 4) Another girl was horny, and tried to do something about it. 5) And of course the boys actually came out and asked for sex, although couched in the "decent" terms of the fifties/sixties.
People (mostly "liberated" women) complain that this movie was about oppression of women (they didnt feel "complete" without a man), but this was women's liberation (women were horny and honest about it)
The marvelous casting and dialogue made this film one of the great american classics of its genre that still holds up today.
definitely a 10!
