Slicker than the A.I.P. "Beach Party" flicks, though still not as good...
6 May 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Sorority beach babes in Balboa, CA have to raise $10,000 to save their order, eventually resorting to desperate measures (like entering a cooking contest, a beauty contest, and trying to get The Beatles to perform at the local hot spot). Charmingly dim-witted surf-sand-&-sexy girls opus, obviously a knock-off of the "Beach Party" cycle--and better produced--but not quite as charismatic. The flick spotlights a bevy of energetic ladies, and also Lesley Gore (it's unclear if Gore is visiting royalty or if she's just another one of the gals). Though it isn't fresh, it is fun, noodle-headed nonsense, given a fast pace and a good soundtrack. **1/2 from ****
