Cheeze-ball Geezers Ride Again!
30 July 2005 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Ugh. Just caught this flic on the telly. It's an utterly cheezy 70's-style film, set at a lake resort where aging men in mid-life crisis encounter California lake beach-bums for the purpose of rescuing Barbara Eden from an arrogant younger man (Patrick Swayzee) who's affections are not being reciprocated. Her geezer-biker-dude-wannabe arrives to rescue her. Ho hum. The music is kitchy, but the scenery is great - the film's only redeeming quality. A good retrospective peak back at 70's fashion faux pas. Bad overacting all over the place, especially from Jamie Farr. Was fun to see them all in their earlier days though. And Barbara in her later.
