Storyline

Stu & O.T. are two studs from the big city who arrive in Fort Lauderdale for spring break. They discover that the room they had reserved in an over crowded motel is already being occupied by Nelson & Adam, a pair of college nerds. With no other accomodations available, Nelson & Adam reluctantly agree to share the room with Stu & O.T., who promise to show them a good time. The wet-T-shirt contests and beer-guzzling-fun are threatened when Nelson's controlling step-dad shows up, along with a building inspector who wants to shut down the motel.

Trivia

The "Spring Break" phenomenon, while epitomized by Fort Lauderdale in Florida, USA, is actually a national phenomenon, and one that pours millions of dollars into the economy. And it's also why the permanent residents of Fort Lauderdale (who had at around the time the movie was made a population of 140,000) have held out that welcome beach mat to "Spring Break", and this, at the time the film was produced, had been for more than forty years.

Goofs

The belly flop from the palm tree was from directly above the pool, and he just dropped spread-eagled straight down. The next shot shows him hitting the water but clearly from a trajectory that originated from the side of the pool, and not 20 feet up in a palm tree. See more »

Great Film!
4 June 2001 | by crushinSee all my reviews

I LOVED this film! It is such a reminder of the great teenage sex films of the 80's. HBO used to show this almost 24/7 and I still watch it everytime I can. Most people probably dismissed this film as being nothing more than another 80's "teenage coming of age" movie, but it really is more! Look at MTV's Spring Break yearly specials and "reality" shows. You'll see how much things REALLY have NOT changed. It should be noted that Steve Bassett who was an actor in this film went on to become one of the most loved actors in the daytime drama "As The World Turns" in the role of "Seth Snider" for many years. If you catch this film, watch it an relive the 80's fun all over again! And by no means, Don't Burn It!
