Kind of the British version of a teen film like "Where the Girls Are" crossed with Nicholas Ray. Michael Winner directs Oliver Reed and his Jersey Shore-like pals chasing rich girls in at a seaside vacation spot. The film is a lot edgier and more sexually overt than American teen films of the same time and that's what makes this film interesting. While Reed and his cad friends initially come to the resort town looking to have their way with tourist girls, the film takes an interesting turn when Reed comes to realize that it's them and not the rich tourists who are being exploited. It was also kind of interesting to see Reed as a roguishly handsome young man, as opposed to the large imposing Orson Welles-like figure I'm more used to seeing him as.
