East Coast teen/beach movie
28 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beach House unquestionably has a distinctive East Coast vibe as compared to most teen-beach-T&A films from the late '70s thru the '80s which have the obvious So-Cal West Coast youth milieu. These South Philly and Brooklyn characters are fairly realistic and a welcomed change of pace for this type of film. And of course, there really are not enough films shot at the Jersey Shore. As stated by other reviews here, the characters really grow on you. Additionally, after living through absolute crap such as reality shows like The Jersey Shore, Beach House is now completely charming, and frankly, much more realistic. The amateur actors are so realistic it almost seems like a reality show filmed in a traditional manner. Beach House also avoids an unnecessary mean vibe which many beach-teen films did not purely out of lazy writing. The sub plot of a sexual predator was a good idea for a climactic scene. This films is really just a good independent film more than a traditional T&A-teen film. But Indy films wouldn't be truly welcomed or popular for at least 10 years from then. Kudos to 21 year old writer-producer Marino Amoruso.
