Storyline

Set in Palm Springs during a long, fun-filled weekend where several Los Angeles college students flock to spring break, centering on Jim who finds romance with Bunny, the daughter of Palm Springs harried, stressed, police chief. Jim's bumbling roommate, Biff, tries to get Amanda, a tomboyish girl's attention with a so-called love gadget. Meanwhile, Gayle Lewis is a high school senior posing as a wealthy college girl who is pursued by Eric Dean, a wealthy and spoiled college preppie, while Gayle has eyes for a cowboy from Texas, named Stretch. Also Jim and Biff's basketball coach, Campbell, tries to romance Naomi, the owner of the motel where all of the gang is staying, which is interfered with by Naomi's young, trouble-making brat son, who's dubbed Boom-Boom.

Trivia

During the scene where the motel swimming pool fills up with soap bubbles, a lot of the set crew people and actors became physically sick from the fumes caused by the bubbles popping, forcing the set to be temporarily closed down. See more »

Quotes

Bunny Dixon: Ruthie, how'd you ever get your Mom's okay?
Ruth Stewart: I didn't. She and Dad went to Vegas for a few days. Now, look, there's beer and soft drinks in the kitchen. The bedrooms are off limits. And if you want to go in the pool, you're going to have to wear a suit.
Jim Munroe: Darling, you didn't tell me this was going to be a formal affair.
Bunny Dixon: But, of course.

I loved this movie(Re-run TV) when I was a teenager. I tell my kids about it all the time, all the while wishing that I could show it to my kids. HOWEVER, it is not on DVD and THAT is a crying shame.

Teenagers turned loose on Palm Springs for the weekend. Everyone's, especially the police and parents, hands are full. I admire how filmmakers in those times touched upon sensitive social issues (such as premarital sex and being true to yourself) without pounding out the movie's entertainment value. "Palm Spring's Weekend" is a light-hearted, fun movie that I wish I could show my kids.

Please SOMEBODY OUT THERE, put it on DVD!!!
