Audience Reviews for Hot Resort

During the 1980's, raunchy teen comedies saturated the marketplace and while a handful became classics, most were made quickly to make a quick buck and quickly disappear. The blandly titled "Hot Resort" definitely falls into that last category, and the film is simply pieced together from the decade's worst films to make a new, super-awful film. It's full of raunchy humor but not a single laugh, and it's obviously modeled after "Police Academy" with a motley bunch of rejects bucking the system. It's class conflict at its worse with the working class slobs versus the rich kids, and the film is little more than a collection of vignettes with the barest thread tying it all together. Only a handful of the large ensemble cast made a name for themselves after this debacle, but that short list doesn't include the film's star, Tom Parsekian. That name doesn't exactly translate well to stardom, and he's basically a poor man's Michael Keaton. He only made one other film after the bad taste from this one faded away. It's chock full of distasteful jokes and gay stereotypes, which were common in films like this, and even culminates in a sports competition between the jocks and the screw-ups. You don't get much more common that that. And the production values are shockingly low. This looks years older than it really is. "Hot Resort" takes the worst elements of the genre and sinks it even lower. The most offensive thing about this is how ordinary it is.
