3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Movie But Great Interview w/Wendy Schaal Oct. 16 2011
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Where The Boys Are '84" is more or less the female version of 1983's "Spring Break" rather than an update of the 1960 Paula Prentiss/Connie Francis original. It's your standard college-kids-on-vacation flick, mid-80s style with lots of frizzy hair and cheesy music. The sex and profanity is somewhat tame by today's standards. Lisa Hartman is the diligent, responsible music student; Lorna Luft's the zany one who's bored with her longtime boyfriend; Wendy Schaal is the prissy Southern belle and Lynn-Holly Johnson's the party chick in search of meaningless sex with a "Conan the Barbarian"-type.

Not a great film by any means--Lorna Luft brings the most to the table as the comic relief and her dance routine during a "Hot-Bod" contest is quite amusing, but not enough to save the movie. It's predictable and there's not a lot of snappy dialogue. Lisa Hartman fans may be disappointed. Though she performs the title song at the end, she doesn't show a lot of skin here, which is odd because I've seen pics of her from this era and she always looked great in a bikini.

Where this release succeeds is in the bonus features. There's a 20-minute interview with Russell Todd but fans of Wendy Schaal will be delighted. Hers runs over a half-hour and she elaborates on everything and even talks about her time on "It's a Living" and "Fantasy Island". She still looks adorable by the way (*NOTE* Check out the screen grabs I posted in the Images section of this product).

Rent before you buy. Not a keeper, unless you're a big fan of Wendy; then get it for the extensive interview. The print looks great and it's widescreen.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mindlessly Amusing 80's Romp May 28 2006
By Dallas L. Keffer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Not nearly as substantial as the original. This film has little more to offer than a mindless romp in the Florida sun in the early 1980's.

Here I go again. I am prejudiced. I am both a Florida fiend and hopelessly nostalgic for the 1980's. That's all there is in this movie. It is otherwise totally forgettable. Nevertheless, it is fun. Not every movie tries or even should be a literary work of art.

Fort Lauderdale of 1983, a few years before I got there for the first time myself! I can watch this movie over and over. It is another time capsule I love to open. There is the music, lots of early 80's rockabilly and synthesizer pop; the beautiful Fort Lauderdale locations, lots more than the original movie; and, of course, the boys! Oh, how I want the 80's back again! If you don't, then don't bother with this movie. Otherwise, just turn it on and enjoy a trip down memory lane, with a beachfront view.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Where The Over-Ripe Actors Are '84" Oct. 14 2007
By Music & Movie Luver - Published on Amazon.com
If you're into Spring Break flicks about Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. in the 1980's you'll probably enjoy this silly romp. These actors are all a little too "over-the-hill" to play college students! Keep an eye on Lorna Luft (she's Judy Garland's daughter & Liza Minelli's half sister) she spends a a lot of time mugging for the camera. She tries very hard to make you believe she's a college kid, but looks more like a 30-something housewife who belongs in a station wagon, not a convertible. An attempt to give her a younger appearance with pigtails (in a beach scene) only makes her look retarded, not youthful. Unintentional laughter will take hold of you when Luft's character, Carole Singer, enters a "Hot Bod"(?!) contest... AND WINS SECOND PLACE!!! The soundtrack is good, with the standout tunes "Seven Day Heaven" by Shandi, & Lisa Hartman's remake of the Connie Francis classic "Where The Boys Are."
(I agree with the other reviewers that if you have a soft spot in your heart for the 80's, spring break, & South Florida you'll be loving this!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Instant Video March 23 2014
By L. Ellis - Published on Amazon.com
Would love to be able to watch on Instant video instead of having to pay $16.00 to buy it. Please make this and Spring Break available on Instant Video. These movies are fun to watch, but we should be able to rent them.

5.0 out of 5 stars OK. So it's not Citizen Kane Oct. 22 2013
By USCGuyinDowntownL.A. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
No one will ever confuse this with Citizen Kane, Dark Victory, or any other classic film. But this stupid little film from the 1980s is a perfect time capsule of (an idealized) college existence before the Internet and before life became so complicated. There is something almost sweet about this movie---R rated, but sweet. I am not going to use the word wholesome, but this is just a slice of life that many collegians wish they could have had during their university experience. Big thumbs up to Lisa Hartman and Lorna Luft. I wish Lisa Hartman would have been able to sing more in this film. She has a terrific voice.
