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

Quotes

Laurie Jameson: Jennie, thinking has nothing to do with it. We're talking ten days of Sodom and Gomorrah. How can you duck out of that now?
Jennie Cooper: Because I have a term paper due in two weeks and I haven't even started yet. I'm not like you Laurie. You don't crack a book and you make straight As.

Great, lighthearted fun trip of 80's nostalgia
2 August 2011 | by (Dorset, England) – See all my reviews

I have never felt the need to post here before, although I do frequently read the reviews of other members. I am doing so purely out of dismay at some of the negatives this movie (in my humble opinion) has been given. Obviously, I am far from a film snob and my reasons for enjoying any movie, no doubt come from a very different place than some reviewers, but I consider myself pretty well educated and I have seen many truly dreadful films in my time. This however, is not one of them. I appreciate that it's pretty cheesy fare - just as it was in the 80's when I first saw it - but to me that's part of its charm. It's a lighthearted, feel good and fun way to spend a couple of hours, while reminiscing what was for me, a very special time. It's true that certain scenes (1 in particular for me) do and always have, make me cringe a little but for this movie, that is a positive. There are also many laughs to be had and for me, any film that can entertain throughout and leave me smiling as this one does, has earned its rightful place in my collection and deserves a little more respect for those reasons. I only wish I could find it on DVD, as my well viewed VHS version has definitely seen better days.
