Shortly after the opening credits, when Morrow and Depp visit the bar, Curt (Andrew Clay) can be seen next to them at the bar making out with a girl. Later on when they return to the bar, presumably the next evening, Curt is again at the bar with the same girl. When Curt's real girlfriend (the really drunk one) approaches Curt she says its their first night there and he's already flirting with other girls. She must be drunker than she looks since Curt was there with the same girl the night before. See more »
Everyone has those cheesy 80's favorites that weren't as well known as the Porky's, Real Genius, Revenge of The Nerds, etc...Everyone remembers those B-level films you would see late at night on Cinemax and for some reason, you sat there and watched it, and ended up loving some of them. I'm thinking of movies like Fraternity Vacation, Hot Dog, Malibu Express, etc.
Private Resort is one of those movies for me. I'm really surprised it is not more popular, and a 3.7 IMDb rating just seems insanely low to me.
You've got Johnny Depp and Rob Morrow, very early in their careers, running around and getting into all this wacky hi jinx at a fancy Florida resort. Although they came just to have some fun and chase some girls, they find themselves getting into a bunch of different hilarious situations. Hector Elizondo is also really funny in this movie, as the bad guy with the bad toupee. And who can forget Andrew Dice Clay in a memorable role?
Definitely not an Oscar-caliber epic, but just one of those hilarious 80's sex romps. These types of movies disappeared for about 10 years but I'm glad to see the cycle is coming back around with movies like American Pie, Old School, Eurotrip, etc. Lots of laughs, gorgeous babes, and fun in the sun. This is a pretty under-appreciated 80's comedy classic in my opinion.
