Critic Reviews for Psycho Beach Party
Awkward combination of garish set decoration and muffled humor.
Saddled with both a script and direction that never comes near the wit or cleverness in Busch's own performance.
It definitively skewers the false innocence of American pop culture on the eve of the countercultural deluge.
Audience Reviews for Psycho Beach Party
Surprisingly good. Kitschy fun with a good cast, some of whom you don't see around much these days.
The only reason I watched this is because it is Amy Adams' second film. I didn't expect much, but it was more enjoyable than I thought. This film is nothing special, but it has a level of sillyness and appeal that will keep you entertained. The acting is not great, but the humor and crude remarks are enough to keep the interest. Not a film I'd recommend to everyone, but if you love Amy Adams as I do, it's worth a watch. She has a small role, but she's so great and funny.
"There is so much ugliness in the world. Can't there be anyone who is utterly perfect?" What an odd combination of a slasher, dance numbers, surfing, cross-dressing, split-personalities, a murder mystery, and campy humor. I only chose to see Psycho Beach Party because of the presence of a young Amy Adams, who I will watch absolutely any movie for. Without her, I wouldn't have had much of a reason to finish this. I love campy, cult movies, but Psycho Beach Party didn't particularly amuse me. It wasn't bad, but this movie is really only worth seeing if you're a fan of the cast (which includes Lauren Ambrose, Thomas Gibson, and Kathleen Robertson), and for the cheesy, awesome ending. Watch the trailer, it should give you an excellent idea of whether this is for you.
