Spring break from 1983 by Sean S Cunningham. (yep the dude that made Friday the 13th, guess sometimes the teens got to party and die and sometimes they just got to party).  The precursor to movies like revenge of the nerds and a million other American spring break coming of age comedies (often produced by Canadians) Two not so cool guys Adam and Nelson go to Fort Lauderdale and end up stuck sharing a room with two much more cool party guys. They learn from each other if not exactly get along . The not so cool guys are the main part of the movie and look like as if the twins from Suite life of ZAck and Cody grew up to be scrawny nerd pervs on spring break.. which I am pretty sure they did. Its odd cause the film is definitely fun and full of beer, partying and surprising gorgeous babes even despite the awful 80s hair. Its a real middle point in the plethora of films just like this. Its not as wacky and cartoony as Screwballs and not as uncomfortably real as say Last American Virgin or Porkys. Very silly fun that dates its self because teenagers these days don’t party like this and when they do awful shit seems to happen. A refreshing laugh that is not haunted by dark truths. Also most cute. It does weird me out cause I expect a horror movie to eventually happen cause its filmed alot like Friday the 13th part 3… so obviously having nothing  to do with the Sean Cunningham connection.. also feels like Nightmare beach, but alas no killer on a motorcycle. There is a little rich man and his stupid henchman caper as a small back story because one of the nerdy guys is running away from his rich step dad. Its reminiscent of Frankie Avalon movies but there are way too many boobies in this movie to feel too much like that. Oh man then they see the all girl rock band.. damn.. that singer.. that cat suit.. “I feel kinda funny” said in my best Garth voice. There is an alligator attack but everyone survives, I would say sadly but these idiot guys in the movie are dumb but you don’t hate em. Maybe  I don’t hate them cause the beer cans to the head and mooning of chicks in this movie reminds me of me.. just less pool parties in my life, I just did it in the streets. Oh there is a guy in a monkey suit lifting weights so that feels like me too. Seriously it does… Aannyways this is a party time dumb film so don’t worry this is definitely not Spring BreakERS. So party on guys… hmmm did made me feel weird that I have been alone watching bad movies all day long. Who wants to play frisbee to some generic 80s rock? Thanks to director Richard Mogg for picking this b movie that is not a bad movie, just for a specific generation and luckily I am old. Double bill with the extra funnier One Crazy summer if you are feeling the summer fun mood.
