A Fine, Fun Movie, Great Plot, With Great Characters.
13 March 2002 | by (Milwaukee,Wis.) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie very much. Briefly, it is about a gang of hoodlums that pester a small resort owner to the point of frustration.In short they have taken over the resort and driven out the better customers by making it dangerous and no fun. At this point she (Barbara Eden as Mary Beth Allen) contacts an old friend (Don Murray as Sonny Morgan). He summons up their old (over the hill) gang of motor cycle friends who then help rout out these jerks. Their antics in doing this are extremely funny and satisfy the viewers desire for revenge.

Again great plot, and a great cast.
