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 pursued by musician drifter Scott and Sandra's snobbish 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
I saw this movie back in April 1984 at the 400 Drive-in, in Toronto. The second feature was another classic titled "Spring Break". The plots are basically the same in both movies. With "Where the Boys Are '84", it's about 4 college co-eds that go to Fort Lauderdale for spring break. It's one of my fave movies, I bought it used on VHS last year, and must have watched it over 50 times! The sunshine, beach, the '80s style, and most of all Lisa Hartman, makes this a "so bad it's good" type of movie. What might be offensive to some people is the coarse language, but other than this it's a fun movie to watch. I just hope that one of these days this movie is offered on DVD. If you are looking for some classic '80s drive-in movie fare, this one should be at the top of your list.
