beauty(-ies) and the beach bums
2 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well, as so many have said, this is a fun movie, with (at least in the R-rated version) a lot of gratuitous nudity from a wide range of babes, somehow excepting our two leading ladies, ably portrayed by the scrumptious Felicity Waterman and the insanely adorable Ami Dolenz.

The other reviewers have pretty well told the story of this movie as far as its strengths (lots of pretty skin and faces, cute love story, nothing too heavy) and weaknesses (mediocre acting by most of the cast, predictable plot). I just wanted to be nerdy and point out one thing which dropped my rating down for this still-enjoyable romp: Jeannie's disdain for Earth, at the start of the film, vanishes without a trace the instant she appears here, never to be heard from again. That's just horrible writing. I know, it's just a B-movie with skin and goofy laughs, but come on. It wouldn't have taken even 10 minutes of thought to put in at least a token follow-on to that bewilderingly abandoned plot point. She could have shown a transition from cynic to some sort of warmth and interest, over the course of the movie.

Oh well. Ami really is about as adorable a genie as anyone could want, so it's hard to care too much about that. If she ever popped out of a bottle for me, I'd be asking her what *she* wanted!!

One last thing: what was up with Dean Cameron's hair? Points for originality, I guess, but... wow. LOL!

Did I mention Ami is adorable?
