Tommy Lee Jones,
Before the opening credits someone told the lead to take a vacation, and this movie undoubtedly is. It's not Zuma beach. Just a day on Zuma beach. Fun day to be specific.
It looked like they hired 2 guys. One to write the beach's glee. And another to write the unnecessary unrelated talkative scenes in between. I mean don't ask what was the main theme, since seriousness was totally out. The whole thing is about having a nice time. At one indicative moment one guy tells the rest about his old man who's interested in the Middle Eastern crisis then in nanosecond the movie cuts to a close up of a girl's butt moving in rainbow-colored bikini. Enough opinion from the movie towards any seriousness !
It's not a musical beach movie a la the ones of the 1960s. Or a teen beach comedy as the ones of the 1980s. Actually, it's the tamest, less interesting, version of both. However it managed perfectly to be so attractive thanks to the sweet colorful cinematography, the good female bodies in bright swimsuits, the light songs, the sarcastic lines and Suzanne Somers's everything! It's where we not talk about the movie's elements but review the movie's dolls. And seriously they were all HOT!
(Kimberly Beck) and her fascinating black bikini (where is such a gal ??), or (Rosanna Arquette) back when she was a hottie. Both were sexier than (Suzanne Somers). Though, who cares ?! The director loved them all. For instance (Lee H. Katzin) just filled up the screen with Somers's assets being all the time in that blue swimsuit, walking, playing and bending! The whole movie was a feast of eye candy. Well, a little feast. But a feast anyway!
I wanted the bar's owner to be the storyteller of the story, but there wasn't any. I wanted interesting characters, but there was only a smile.. a beauty.. then a kiss. So who needs characters ? Hence I wanted more beauties (yes, I'm that greedy!) but this is what it is. A TV movie after all. And if they made it just for exploiting Somers's stardom back then, getting ratings, then they hit the mark.
My big finish : It's the 1970s's fluff TV at its gayest moment, the last time I saw (Somers) as sexy, and while it's surely not a great movie; it's great as hot time.
