1956. Obsessed with the hottest girl in class, a gawky high school student takes a crash course in teenage coolness from his motorcycle rebel neighbour, under the watchful eye of the eternal symbol of teenage rebellion: James Dean.

Three middle-aged daddies visit California to have a marvelous time at the beach. When they learn that a nice apartment and an expensive cabriolet isn't enough for them to score with the chicks, they employ a student to help them. At first he's as disgusted of them and his job as his girlfriend, but soon they find out how to use the situation to everyone's benefit.Written by

Director Mark Griffiths said of this movie's filming: "The first day of production we shot the title sequence, in which lots of gorgeous girls relax on the beach, listen to music, cover their bodies with tanning oil and generally hang out on the beach and in the water. When we moved locations, we piled five of the girls into a Mercedes 450SL and drove around with the top down. Well, we literally stopped traffic. People waited in intersections and cars made U-turns to get a better look at the girls. And when we had the film processed, even the guys at the lab said they could make a fortune selling tickets to our dailies!". 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.
