A shrill take on small-time thugs here mistakenly called beatniks.

Audience Reviews for The Beatniks

A PSA movie about a greaser with the talent of singing being threatened by his jealous friends. Contrary to the title, there were no beatniks.

This movie shows the problems of having bad friends who wont stop hanging around. The main character is annoyed with them and so is the audience. The movie is pretty good, but it's predictable, it could have been better.
