Storyline

At Chicago's North Avenue Beach, the lifeguards are the law. These ragtags will do everything in their power to make sure you don't go out past your waist. Best friends Hughie (the hopeless romantic) and Otis (the ladykiller) get caught in one love triangle after another as young vixen Maggie and tomboy May make it hard for them to keep their eyes on the water at all times. As the summer sun heats up, so does tension among the crew, and their despotic superiors make sure that's it's never just another day at the beach. Written by Anonymous

I was so pleased with this film! Panache!
21 September 2010 | by mlcorradoSee all my reviews

Wow, I was so pleased with this film! I went into it thinking it was just another low budget indie but it was so much more. Fantastic performances from a huge cast. Rob Belushi (OJ) really stands out as excellent. Krissy Whitehead (May) succeeds as a lead and Ben Wells (Hughie) has all the sympathy. There was great snappy dialogue with a particularly Chicago panache. Set on the biggest beach in Chicago it really feels current, personal, and local. However, the sexual growing pains of its 18-21 year old characters is truly universal. The movie plays like, GO or KIDS. Serious relationship issues are not oversimplified nor do they bring down the film, and often are completed with hilarious contributions from the script that keeps the film's sense of humor intact.
