Screenwriter Eric Alter said of this film: "These guys are in their early 40s, successful and divorced. They spent their entire lives looking at these great girls and decided to finally do something about it. So they take all their money and invest it in a totally new lifestyle. They applied to dating the very same business tactics that helped them become financially successful. But there was still something missing and that's where Scotty comes in. He was like a magnet to girls. So they all made a little deal and, boom, they were in business!". See more »

This movie has always been a strong favourite of mine. Everything from the California sunshine, to the funny storyline & characters is what gives this movie such a great appeal. Since the other reviewers have mentioned the plotline, I'm not going to mention it again. This movie has a nice flow to it which makes it an entertaining hour and thirty-minutes. I really liked this movie when it came out at the theatres in the summer of '84, and I still love it today, not only for the story but for the pure '80s nostalgia of it all. Five years before "California Dreaming" was released, but it didn't catch the same vibe that "Hardbodies" did, even though it was a good movie in it's own right. I bought a VHS copy of "Hardbodies" two years ago, and it's been a replayable & enjoyable addition to my library. I would really like to see this movie released on DVD someday.
