At the time the movie came out, Pepsi-Cola's slogan was "Now It's Pepsi for Those Who Think Young". This wasn't a coincidence, as Pepsi had a presence in the film. There are scenes of people ordering and drinking Pepsi, as well as a Pepsi machine in the club. See more »

For Those Who Don't Think...
18 September 2002 | by Poseidon-3See all my reviews

This horrendous mish-mash of "Beach Party" movie, showcase for "comedian" Woodbury and love story between Darren and Tiffin has so much excess junk in it that none of the elements succeed. The cast list is jaw-dropping. There's Burstyn (doing an admirable enough job) in a role far removed from the meaningful work she would later do. Middleton plays Lee's father even though he is TWO YEARS older than her in real life. "Gidget" TV co-star Nader wiggles and jiggles around next to Darren (who starred in the original movie "Gidget".) Denver has the camp highlight of the movie. He paints his chin to look like a person, buries himself in the sand and sings a surfing chant while curvy, tan teens gyrate everywhere. Louise is shown stripping (which is one of the few acceptable things about the movie!) It's hard to believe that Denver and Louise appeared in a feature film together the year that "Gilligan's Island" premiered. (For decades, she groused about how she was a star who got stuck on TV. If this is what she was making, she didn't miss much from her film career!) The delectable Tiffin looks spaced through much of the film (or is her eye makeup too heavy to keep her eyes open?) She promotes Pepsi in this film after promoting Coke in "One, Two, Three". Her career was through before she could do one for RC. Woodbury is agonizing. Not only are most of his jokes just plain awful, the way he delivers them is abysmal. He is yet ANOTHER of the "Introducing ________ as_______" who was scarcely heard from again....for good reason! He's what Tab Hunter would look like with a gap in his teeth, a hellacious comb-over, wrinkles and even less talent. Beyond all these people, toss in Raft, Hart and Dino and Frank's daughters! You'd think something interesting could have come of all these personalities. But no...... The biggest crime the film makes (and one that it just can not be forgiven for) is billing Lynde third and giving him absolutely nothing to work with. He barely appears on screen and is exactly what this film needs. HE should have played Woodbury's part! He and Woodbury are amusing in that they are brothers, but they live and act like two old queens. They sit on the beach like two old sisters and even sleep together in one scene! Another scene has Louise handing them some dangerously phallic hot dogs. Woodbury, after toying with it briefly, hands his to Lynde and says, "Here...keep this warm." That moment alone causes one of the few laughs in the film. They should have run with it!
