Sunset Cove (1978)

Director: Al Adamson

Starring: Jay B. Larson, Burr Smidt, Ray Andrews, Karen Fredrik, Steven Fisher, John Carradine

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Can The Beach Bunnie Brigade--Armed Only With Their String Bikinis--Stop The Dreaded Condominium Machine?

Plot: A group of fun loving teens use sex as a weapon to stop the evil developers (who are in cahoots with the mayor) from building condos on their beloved beach. Stupidity ensues.

My rating: 2/10

Will I watch it again? Aw, hell no!

#40 on 42nd Street Forever Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

Dumb, dumb, dumb. It's one of the many retarded teen sex comedies to come out of the late 70s and didn't stop for about a decade. The acting is OK at best and would have rated a couple of points higher if they actors were horrible. At least it would have been unintentionally funnier. The adults (except for Carradine, which I must admit he actually did a good job for a change and didn't ham it up) are bumbling idiots, the prerequisite fat guy eats ALL the time, the girls are bimbos and the guys are either dorks or meat heads. I didn't laugh once. Sometimes I hate my life, 90 minutes at a time, and this was one of those times. The ONLY thing this flick has in its favor...

but not even boobs can save a picture this bad.
