For those who were not born before 1962, the beach party movies were a series of chaste comedies in which clean-cut teen idols hung out on the beach, rode the big waves, necked a little and tried to defend their lifestyle against the old fogies who were always trying to ban rock 'n' roll. The financially successful teen movies were a tie between harmless and brainless. This 80’s Flick was a musical satire poking fun at those idols and the whole genre, but did it with a lot of good humor and with the full cooperation of the victims. So grab some sunscreen, your extra-long surfboard, and watch out for a random pajama party to break out as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Chad Sheppard, discuss “Back to the Beach” from 1987 on this special “Forgotten 80’s Flicks” episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback Podcast!
