Since last week’s Cheeseball Cinema film, I decided that I should keep going instead of doing it just one time and I have another good one for you guys this week. The name of today’s film is Hardbodies and it’s an 80’s instructional video on how to pick up chicks at a beach. Well, I am just kidding, but the film stars Grant Cramer (Killer Klowns From Outer Space) as Scotty, a hip and cool California beach kid. Three older guys Hunter (Gary Wood), Ashby (Sorrells Pickard), and Rounder (Michael Rapport) are having a hard time picking up ladies. One day, they see Scotty doing it and they want him to teach them the ways of picking up hardbodies (gorgeous beach girls). Everything is going great for all of them until Hunter puts a move on Scotty’s girl Kristi (Teal Roberts). Now he has to teach them a lesson they’ll never forget. The film also stars Courtney Gains (Children Of The Corn) as Rad, Cindy Silver as Kimberly, Kristi Somers (Rumble Fish) as Michelle, Crystal Shaw Martell (Hard Rock Zombies) as Candy, Darcy DeMoss (Can’t Buy Me Love) as Dede, Kane Hodder (Friday The 13TH Part VII) as Older Geek, Kathleen Kinmont (Halloween 4: The Return Of Michael Myers) as Pretty Skater, and the film was directed by Mark Griffiths (Hardbodies 2).
As you can see from above, the film featured a lot of who’s who of actors from the horror genre like Kathleen Kinmont and Kane Hodder (he’s briefly in the film). It also featured a lot of the actors who kind of flew under the radar in the 80’s and 90’s being in cool movies and such. So, you’re probably wondering about what I thought about this film and the answer is simple. Unlike last week’s film which was just an excuse to show T&A with a horrible story and acting, this week’s film actually had a story, good acting, lots of T&A. There is enough T&A in this film to please anyone even Mr. Skin. The thing that got me was even though there were some cheesy sequences, there was some really good acting involved in this film and the story didn’t bore me to death. One of the other cool things about this film is the fact that they have 80’s all female rock band Vixen in the film as the band Hardbodies. I was looking through the cast on IMDB and saw the name Vixen on it and freaked. The soundtrack even features a few songs from the band on as well as Gerard McMahon (The Lost Boys). It was a fun film overall and I definitely recommend checking it out. On a scale of one being close to an A-List Hollywood film and five being the cheesiest film of all time, I would have to give the film an 2.5 because it wasn’t bad.
