a barrage of live-action cartoon madness aimed at the in-the-moment entertainment atmosphere of, well, a party.

First of the long-running series. Not that bad and good nostalgia

Audience Reviews for Beach Party

A bearded scientist type goes to spring break to investigate what's happening with those kooky kollege kids dancing and wiggling around next-to-naked and right in public, too, inaugurating American International Pictures sleazoid attempt to seize the youth market by defining it. Annette bravely plays a teenage Doris Day, the only girl on the beach not giving it up, but threatening to, dammit, threatening to alla time. So she's the only one Frankie wants.

This is the first of the "Beach" movies with Frankie and Annette, and it's the best one of them. If you only see one "Beach" movie, see this one.
