Chuck: I don't suppose you'd like to go to the movies tonight?
Jane: Oh, fuck off.
Chuck: Well, I guess a blow job would really be out of the question then?
Jane: Not necessarily.

Jane: Fuck you!

Uncomplicated, morals-free summer fun.
4 January 2001 | by (Oslo, Norway) – See all my reviews

The setup in "Hot resort" is simple. A group of guys work at a summer resort to make a buck and try to get chicks. Simple and easy. There's some standard trials and tribulations. Will the lowly pool boy get the beautiful rich chick? Will the fat kid get laid? And so on, and there's an aditional plot concerning the making of a soup commercial featuring a team of rowers that the resort workers have to compete with.

The really good thing about this film that makes it well worth catching if it shows up on TV is its complete lack of morals. Unlike most films nowadays, and especially teen films, "Hot resort" doesn't try to make the viewer walk away with some sort of deep insight. The characters quest is simple and pure: Get chicks, get laid, get drunk, get money, get even with the snobs and generally enjoy yourself. There's plenty of cursing, and naked flesh. It's a feel good movie where the feeling good doesn't necessarily mean finding the love of your life.

"Hot resort" Is clearly trying to ride the wave of 80s teen movies, and cash in on showing naked girls on the screen, so some might call it a bit of a rip off. However, the moral-free approach in my opinion, transforms this film from cheap rip off to 90 well spent minutes of uncomplicated 80s fun. I won't compare this film to such a masterpiece as "Animal house", but I think it has some of the same anarchistic spirit to it. Highly recommended if you like 80s movies.
