Reports I've come across indicate that the major players of "Private Resort" are today very embarrassed by the movie - Hector Elizondo, for one, once called it the very worst movie of his career. It doesn't take long upon watching the movie to figure out why Elizondo, Johnny Depp, and Rob Morrow have disowned the results. True, the movie has a lot of nudity (though strangely, no on screen sex), but the stuff around that material is all but unwatchable. It isn't just that the comedy is executed in an especially bad manner, but also how painfully predictable it is; you'll be able to guess most of the gags before they unfold in front of you. There are also some touches here and there that many would consider to be racist or homophobic. Apparently Tri-Star Pictures knew they had a turkey on their hands, since the movie was obviously chopped up in the editing room (the short running time is one clue of this), but also by barely releasing the end product to theaters. Even if for some reason you have a hankering for an 80s youth sex comedy, avoid it, even as a last resort.
