It's a gas!
16 November 2004 | by (Ottawa) – See all my reviews

Wow - I saw this movie on late-night TV (the only place where you would expect it to shown), and man was it funny! I love spoof movies, and this on did quite nicely. Just the technical aspects of having a modern movie set in the early 60's would be challenging, so hats off to the director. I loved the super cheesy dialogue (Golly gee!), and the characters were both inspired and stereotypical, at east for a 'beach blanket' flick. "I'll be your girl Friday!" says the plucky sidekick. The innuendo and double-entendre's are great, like when the girls are at a scary drive-in movie. "Boys, they only have one thing on their mind.....well, I'm going <to the snack bar> to get a weiner." It was strange seeing Greg from Dharma and Greg here, but what the hell. Backward projection rocks!
