Movie Info

Dee Dee (Annette Funicello) and Frankie (Frankie Avalon) are primed to hit the beach for some fun in the sun. The only thing standing in the way of their good times is curmudgeonly developer Harvey Huntington Honeywagon (Keenan Wynn), who is intent on turning their teenage hotspot into a grazing ground for seniors. If that weren't bad enough, British rock 'n' roll singer Potato Bug (also Avalon) shows up to spark a summer romance with Frankie's main squeeze -- Dee Dee.

Critic Reviews for Bikini Beach

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • A horrible juvenile comedy in which surfers fight cyclists and convert their elders to the pleasures of the bronzed physique.

    April 2, 2012 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Bikini Beach isn't 'good'. It's just tremendously, wonderfully goofy.

    July 19, 2013 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • If the first two Beach Party movies were anything goes, Bikini Beach is everything goes.

  • In an acting stretch, Frankie Avalon here plays both his usual surfing namesake and a vacationing mop-top English singer named the Potato Bug (the sort of British invader that sank Avalon's recording career)...

Audience Reviews for Bikini Beach

  • Sep 05, 2010
    This "Beach" movie has the worst plot of the series. It's still some fun to watch, but it's predictable and stupid, and my least favourite of the movies.

    There's lotsa blondie beach babes shaking they groove thang here (and lotsa times when the camera just sorta slowly meanders down thataway to show you lest you forgot) ... and thankfully too, cause this ain't got much anything better in this mid-1960's style teen exploitation go round.
