Storyline

Remake of the 1960 movie of the same name has four college coeds; virginal Jennie, outgoing Carole, wealthy and spoiled Southern belle Sandra, and horny Laurie traveling to Fort Lauderdale for their Easter week of Spring Break and the series of adventures and mis-adventures they encounter, which include the naive Jennie persued by musician drifter Scott and Sandra's snobish musician cousin Camden. Meanwhile, Carole is seeking a break in her relationship with the jealous Chip who follows her down to Florida. Sandra pursues a romance with local policeman Ernie who arrests her on the first night for being drunk and disorderly, while Laurie just seeks any man she can get her hands on. Written by Matt Patay

This movie is terrible and I love it!
2 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this movie on VHS at my friend's house after school, in the late eighties. I wish I could find the movie now because I'd definitely buy it. It's a crude beach flick, meant to make you cringe and giggle, and it does it well. The performances are earnest, if not actually good, and you end up actually liking the group of ditzes. The music and the party scenes are enjoyable, in a trashy way, and I love that the rich, upper class characters like Barbara and Camden are so out of place in all the spring break wildness. I mean, who visits their uptight family friends on Spring Break? The plot to this movie is irrelevant, because its fun lies in its brainlessness. Enjoy the half-naked coeds and cheap jokes, because sometimes, that's a beautiful thing.
