Campy and cheesy, indie film making at it's best
10 March 2005 | by Baymare-2See all my reviews

If you want "Blue Crush" or even "How To Stuff A Wild Bikini," then this is not the movie for you. But if you just want some shameless laughs and to celebrate independent film-making, then "Wave Babes" is worth a look. I saw this movie at a Gay and Lesbian Film Festival and we (the audience) had a great time. It was fun to see grown-up and real women making fun of themselves and the struggle to stay young and sexy. The cast is funny and serves up the camp on a silver spoon... or a rubber chicken. The story is paper-thin, but it's a comedy... I wasn't looking for a message, just some jokes. Shot in 4 days for 30 grand, in my book, it kicks the stuffing out of some of the big budget movies that are supposed to move us. And I really liked the relationship between the three friends. One of them was gay and it was never an issue, in fact, it was envied at times. It was great to see girlfriends who share common life scenarios without the judgment of orientation. A nice slice of life with cherry on top.
