Storyline

School is out, and three girls head to the beach for vacation. Two of the girls are world-wise party-goers who attempt to loosen up their naive, virginal friend, whose uncle has allowed the girls to stay at his beach house. When the near-sighted, drug smuggling Captain Bly dumps his cargo of marijuana, the bales wash up on shore. The two party girls, Ginger and Ducky, quickly stuff the dope into giant bags and spirit it back to the beach house, where it fuels a party with assorted misfits, delivery persons, and passersby.

I wanna go back to early 80's!!!!
25 January 2009 | by See all my reviews

AWWW... The beach girls, an ol cable favorite. First saw this back in summer of 83 on many cable channels running it. It has the makings of an early 80's sex/comedy for sure. Good looking girls, parties and good atmosphere. Story isn't much, centers around three girls around college age who just wanna party and get naked every chance they can.. Out of the three, we have Sarah, the smart one with the rich uncle who lets her stay at his beach house. Now, uncle has no idea shes bringing her friends and throwing orgies, parties etc. But once he finds out hes in on getting her two friends for a pot smoking frenzy to keep him cool with them staying at the beach house and carrying on the party. There's also this dude that shows up named scott, hes picked up hitchhiking by the two wild friends, now scott seems very out of place in this picture. First off, he appears to be in his thirties and a drifter to boot. He seems so 1970's like hes way out of his element with these girls. But once scott meets sarah, he likes her and wants to protect her from any bad influences which includes trying to start a fight with some kid who trys to dance with sarah. Very strange considering hes only met her a few hours ago.. But overall, the beach girls does have that early 80's beach/sex/comedy feel to it... It really at times feels like a vacation itself . A departure from the movies we have today. This is a film at a time where things seem more innocent than it is these days. Beach girls i think was shot sometime in 1981. And shown in a few theaters and drive -ins in 1982. And all over cable in the summer of 83.. if your looking for some interesting and good fun and some good nudity, beach girls is for you. Trivia, for those interested this low budget movie has a first role cameo from an 80's more less mid 80's actress Cathrine mary stewart. Shes on screen no longer than 2 seconds , don't blink. But shes at the end .. By the way the grindhouse DVD version thats out now along with a movie called coach is the one to get . The DVD transfer is really clean... and widescreen.
