Spring Break (1983)


“You know what it’s like saving money in New York? It’s like making it with your sister – it’s just not done. ” – Stu

Number of Times Seen – 1 (27 Oct 2020)

Brief Synopsis – A group of friends travel to Ft. Lauderdale for Spring Break in order to have fun in the sun.

My Take on it – This is a bland and typical 80’s sex comedy that fails to really bring anything new to the genre.

The characters are far too superficial and one doesn’t even need to root for anyone because nothing of importance matters here.

The plot is minimal and doesn’t manage to distinguish itself within the genre.

As with all films of this genre, it’s filled with lots of T&A, but with a non-existent plot and one dimensional characters, it doesn’t help make things enjoyable to watch on any level.

None of the cast is recognizable at all and this film wasn’t able to jump start any of their careers in Hollywood.

The most interesting thing about this movie is sadly the fact that one of it’s prominently featured actresses disappeared not long after filming commences and has remained missing for close to 40 years. (see Trivia section below)

The one positive thing that can be said about this movie is that it does have a fun 80’s soundtrack, but even that might be considered a far too generous assessment of things.

Bottom Line – Terrible film that doesn’t have much of a plot. None of the characters are develop on more than a superficial level and they all come across quite bland. The film, like most of its genre is filled with T&A, but the fact that the story and plot are pointless takes so much away from things. The 80’s music is the best thing about this film and that is being quite generous. Most intriguing thing about the film is the missing persons case connected to it (see Trivia Section below). None of the cast members are recognizable here and this film didn’t help propel any of them to stardom.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Tammy Lynn Leppert, who played the female boxer in the movie, disappeared on 6th July 1983 under suspicious circumstances and has never been heard from again. (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (2/10)
