A failed experiment that just get more painful as it goes.
I would have at least given this film a 4/10 for effort but even at 90 minutes it really tries your patients. Rafal Zielinski (director of 'Fun (1994)' and the underrated 80's teen comedy 'Screwballs (1983)') attempts to capture the zany spirit of the 1960's 'Beach Party' movies but instead delivers a very flat movie. It's a 1990's MTV music video without the music.
Another problem is that the Corey's and supporting cast (bar Robert Mandan and Geoffrey Lewis as the old movie star rivals) don't seem to know how to give the silly material the energy it needs to even make it passable. So the film feels like it's missing something from the beginning and after the 50 minute mark, the wacky antics, that try to disguise the films direction-less, will wear you down.
By the last 20 minutes (if you're still watching) even a cameo by Zelda Rubinstein won't be any relief. Dread Zeppelin's play out the last few minutes (Before the credits even roll!!!) in a final pointless music video montage.
Overall you would have to be an insane Corey's fanatic to sit through this. I don't give out 1/10 scores often but this film really did try my patients to breaking point.
