Audience Reviews for South Beach Academy

Back in the 1990's, when the home video boom was at the height of its popularity, all you really needed to make a movie was a camera, a threadbare story and sometimes a recognizable name helped too. "South Beach Academy" is one such film, appealing to the most easily pleased renter imaginable. What story there is only exists as an excuse to film women on the beach in various stages of undress, and while it is fun for about five minutes, you almost instantly become immune to all of the bare skin. You know what people say about too much of a good thing. The plot involves two eccentric, elderly millionaires with unlimited resources betting on a beach volleyball game, and that is stretched out to a feature-length run time. The amount of filler is staggering. The "bankable" stars of this dud were famous in at least three different decades, and while "Munsters" star Al Lewis appears to be having the time of his life, he looks like an old woman in a lot of the scenes. James Hong's role amounts to a glorified cameo, and Corey Feldman spends most of the movie walking around with an undeserved sense of entitlement. The starring roles in theatrical films are a thing of the past for him, and his agent should be kind enough to break the news to him. He will forever be stuck in unwatchable junk like this. By the time the film takes a weird serious turn at the end, I had already written this film off. In all honesty, that happened about five minutes into "South Beach Academy". It never even comes close to redemption.

Easily the best movie about beach volleyball starring Corey Feldman. And yes, that is Ron Jeremy hanging out. Not literally, thank goodness.
