Same Old Stuff.
14 May 2002 | by (Northbrook, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that shouldn't have been made after the '80s. It had already been done to death and doesn't offer anything new.

Poor actor extraordinare Christopher Atkins is Bobby, the son of a real estate developer. His father, Mike, is played by Elliot Gould. Mike's company has plans to build a high-rise on a beach in Australia. Bobby goes down to Australia to make sure things go smoothly.

If you have watched movies before then you probably could guess what happens. The locals don't want some developer coming in and ruining their beach community. Bobby falls for one of the local women. He slowly comes around and helps them to fight the development.

How many movies can be made like this? It seems like an infinite number. This movie has no substantial humor, no romance, no compelling story. All it offers the viewer are some nice bodies to look at running around in various stages of undress. However, even that has been done much better before.
