A resort far different from others

Here's another four guys go for some sand, sex, and surf, not necessarily in that order. When seeing the film a few years later after it hit video, then watching it a few more times in the coming years, I don't know, but this one just grew on me. We have a couple of familiar face, some that of quite esteemed actors. God knows what they're doing performing this much. Although it's entertaining muck. We have some nice hotties of course, one who really caught my eye, a tall nice lovely, looking great in her bikini. Pity her friend, is a real stuck up sort. Having a few respected actors in this, I guess is part of the reason's this films, better. It actually has smarter dialogue than you would expect for this sort of tripe too. Tom Parkiensen, the likable lead (who really loves to pack heavy when it comes to contraceptives) and his mates go on a summer job to the island of good ole St Kitts, where they bump heads with not only their employer, but a stuck up bunch of college guys, who form a rowing team who speak uppity, slow and fluent. If you want to try their accent, just clamp your teeth together and speak. What's good is the two hotties eventually wind up, not with those guys, where they too have to act out a commercial, slurping soup that is obviously abominable. There are some quite funny moment, some involving late veteran Frank Gorshin, as a senior guest. See: an actor you wouldn't expect to pop up in something like this, as Sammi Art Williams, the black bartender from Blood Simple. And of course, Bronson Pinchot, (Beverly Hills Cop's Serge) another college kid working his buns off for Summer. We actually have a humping couple, where a guys back goes on him, and they have to cut open this car. Another scene, we have the good guys, taking four other sweet things out, as a request from the owner, his dying father, almost croaking, but coming back to life, when the guys and girls come back to his place. A nice scene within the section of film, has a girl exposing her abundant goodies to Parkinnsen, where she can't hold back the desire to sc.ew him, where he'd rather be more discreet. As far as these kind of movies go, you could do worse, where this out of the norm one, just seems to be more fun, especially when you see the new present an old codger has brought his wife, near the films end. We too have that funny ditsy guy from Flying High as part of the staff. But on the whole, Hot Resort is a sex comedy for the undemanding, despite a lot of nice scenic features. One of the out of ordinary or offbeat scenes, even has an orgy filled closet.
