Blatant Rip-off
26 April 2004 | by (Boca Raton, FL) – See all my reviews

This movie is perhaps the most blatant rip off of another movie that I have ever scene. It was more remake then anything else.

The source material was the 1984 classic T & A flick "Hardbodies". Boardheads (or Beach Movie) has the exact same script, with the only difference being the characters names, and the fact that the new cast is unbelievably annoying. After the first 2 minutes, in which I identifed it as a bad remake, I suffered through the rest simply to determine whether the filmmakers would deviate one iota from the source -- sadly they did not.

I would like to take this opportunity to recommend to anyone that was contemplating viewing this garbage to watch the original instead, it is what this film aspires to be, that is mindless fun with hot babes taking their shirts off for no apparent reason. What they ended up with was pure drivel.
