The Beach Girls


by Tuna

The shy, studious and virginal Debra Blee has been given the use of her uncle's beach house for the summer, and has invited her two best friends, notorious party girls Jeana Tomasina and Val Kline, to join her. The two friends pick up a hunk of a hitchhiker and bring him along. Blee and the hitchhiker have eyes for each other, so the other two girls have to throw a party to fill the gender gap. They start by ordering a pizza delivery guy (with pizza), and work their way through the phonebook until the party is really rocking.

A neighbor with a telescope watches everything with interest until his nosey, uptight wife sees what he has been watching. She calls the police, but the young officer that responds just joins the party. Then she calls uncle's fiancée, who calls uncle. Uncle decides he better come home and check on things. He finds the party in full swing, is not amused, and says he will be sending the two friends away in the morning. They hit upon the perfect plan to get him to change his mind about them -- seduce him. Uncle can't resist the two girlfriends.

Meanwhile, a pot smuggler is on his way North, and the Coast Guard is on the job, in a cutter skippered by "Captain Blye" - with Captain Queeg's ball bearings and a largely gay crew. The smugglers dump the pot overboard in trash bags, and the girls find the flotsam the next morning on the beach. This gives rise to a pot party where every guest is given a personal "key" as they walk through the door. Meanwhile, a horny Hispanic gardener is constantly spying on the often topless women, and usually trips, falls, etc for his trouble. Of course, we haven't heard the last from the Coast Guard, the smuggler or uncle's fiancée.

I saw this film back then and I recall getting the occasional laugh, and I was still entertained this time around. In other words, it's exactly what you're looking for in terms of early 80s youthsploitation films. It wasn't an Oscar contender in any category, but it was, and still is, good mindless entertainment.
