At first he's as disgusted of them and his job as his girlfriend, but soon they find out how to use the situation to everyone's benefit.

Trivia

What's Fall (Autumn) in the rest of the USA still looks like Summer in Southern California. So with beautiful warm weather for principal photography, and a "judicious use of extras and small resources", director Mark Griffiths was able to effectively re-create a typical summertime beach atmosphere. Even the one night they hoped for some rain for one particular scene, they got it. Griffiths said: "Luck was really with us throughout the shoot". See more »

Scotty Palmer: You guys fags?
Hunter: Yeah. I'm the Queen of France and these guys are the D'Angelo sisters... Scotty, we're perfectly straight, man. That's the problem. We're too straight. All we're interested in are hardbodies and we want you to teach us how to get them.
Rounder: To dialog them.
Rounder: And BBD them.

Hooray for Hardbodies-Bring Back The 80's
17 February 2008 | by (Guam) – See all my reviews

I first saw this movie when I was living on Guam in the mid-to-late-80's. I was cleaning out old VHS tapes when I ran across this one. Popped in the VCR and cleaned and watched at the same time. It was as fun a movie today, as it was nearly a quarter-century ago. Grant Cramer as Scotty Palmer has gone on to have an impressive resume and is still working in 2008. Sad to say that his girl from the movie, Kristi played by Teal Roberts did two movies in 1984 and played at stripper in Beverly Hills Cop II and a dancer in The Last Boy Scout and that was about it for her. I really thought at the time that she had a big future in movies as she was really an attractive woman and could act, at least in my opinion. Courtney Gains played Rac and went on to play Malachai in The Children Of The Corn and he is still going strong today. Again, I thought his girl in the movie, Kimberly, played by Cindy Silver, might just go on to have a decent career, but alas, she did two movies in 1984 and that was it. The movie, not to give anything away, is a mostly teen beach party type movie. Scotty is trying to help three older dudes learn to dialog the girls and in the end to get laid as well. Yes, there is some nudity, but it is not over-done in the least. For a fun look back this is a great movie for a rainy Saturday afternoon. Can't see the user rating of 3.8. It is worth every bit of a 7 at least.
