Trivia

Leslie Easterbrook says she had it in her contract to only expose her behind in this film. But the producers convinced her to wear a sheer negligee that left little to the imagination, when filmed under bright lights. See more »

Goofs

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 »

An entertaining film with promising actors
6 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

In "Private Resort" Johnny Depp and Rob Morrow star as two single guys out to meet women at a resort hotel. Actor Hector Elizondo turns in a good performance as a jewel thief and con artist assisted by his wife, played by Leslie Easterbrook. Hilary ( Shapiro ) Shepard-Turner is very convincing as a religious fanatic and heiress to a fortune. This film is filled with classic slapstick comedy, and in places is both entertaining and funny despite a somewhat weak plot. Overall, Private Resort is a good comedy film of the 1980s. Veteran actress Dody Goodman plays a wealthy heiress whose jewelry is targeted by Hector Elizondo's character. There is lots of physical comedy with several now-famous actors early in their careers. Although there is some language and nudity in this film, it is a typical comedy film of the fast-moving 80's.
