Goofs

While Julie is looking through magazines for something to do a thesis on, a piece of equipment starts moving into and out of view. It first happens after "That's what it's all about, babe" is said. It continues when Steve began encouraging Julie's nudism idea, such as when he tried to show her his magazine but she shoved it away. See more »

Quotes

Julie Potter: But I could cover the social significance of this in about two pages. It's hardly a thesis-like topic, is it?

Dull, disappointing and irresponsible.
3 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stay clear of this movie.

They couldn't produce this movie today the same way it was done when they originally made it. For one, the laws are different, much different and much more strict today than they were at the time this movie was made, that should explain the producers' lack of responsibility for the content of this film- actually since it was initially shot on video it can't even be called a film, so- lack of responsibility for the contents of this sore excuse for a movie that is actually more of a shameless plug for naturist resorts and vacation spots.

In addition to that I would even venture to say that anyone following naked children around with a camera should be considered a pervert and a rather dangerous person for the reasons he chooses to follow little children around and want to photograph them for the world to see, inviting an endless lifetime of embarrassment for the unfortunate children who get exploited in that manner. Show a sense of responsibility and keep the cameras away from children during the making of naturist films, that's why there are laws that prohibit such things these days.

Aside of that the acting was fairly dry and the storyline was predictable, something of which I can get around in most movies that have any artistic value but I'm afraid this movie, if you want to call it that, has none, so only one out of five stars.

How I wish for a film whose storyline and plot based on naturism doesn't turn into shameless exploitation and arrogant commercialism.
